|Walk:||Helvellyn, Nethermost Pike, High Crag, Dollywaggon Pike, Grisedale Tarn, Raise Beck|
|Start Point:||Dunmail Raise||Grid Reference:||NY 330 111|
|Distance:||10 miles||Ascent:||3,300 feet|
|Weather:||Dry day with excellent visibility and frequent sunny spells. Fairly chilly on the summits.|
|Comments:||Four walkers joined the leader for this trip to the Eastern Fells. The planned walk had to be shortened due to the path to Swirls being closed but we still managed an enjoyable walk nevertheless. The conditions were near perfect for walking and as a bonus Robb managed to “bag” three new Wainwrights.|
The only stile on the walk, but we had to climb it twice
