Walk: Seat Sandal, Grisedale Tarn, Raise Beck, Dunmail Raise
Start Point: Lay-by on A591 near Grasmere Grid Reference: NY 338 084
Distance: 6 miles Ascent: 2,200 feet
Time: 4 hours
Weather: Very wet, windy and misty but not cold!
Comments: Four walkers attended for this walk. Leaving the cars we followed the A591 for a short distance before turning on to the bridleway up Little Tongue Gill. After a half mile or so we entered the access land and made our way steeply up to the summit of Seat Sandal. As the bad weather looked to be in for the day we decided it would be sensible to shorten the walk and return via Raise Beck and the Pass of Dunmail Raise.
