Walk: Buttermere, Whiteless Pike, Grasmoor, Coledale Hause, Hopegill Head, Whiteside, Crummock Water
Start Point: Buttermere Church Grid Reference: NY 176 170
Distance: 13 miles Ascent: 3,900 feet
Time: 7 hours
Weather: Dry morning, wet afternoon. Low cloud on most fells rising periodically to give some views.

Four walkers attended for this walk in the North Western fells. The cloud base was hovering around 600 metres which meant we missed out on a lot of the wonderful views of this area. It did stay dry until mid afternoon however, which was some consolation.
