Walking (or running) along Grisedale is a joy and shows the best side of Dollywaggon Pike and High Crag, the western sides are boring grass but the east facing ramparts are full of interest.
A terrific place in my humble opinion; Grisedale Tarn. However the ascent to Dollywaggon Pike is a 'killer'. Remorseless; about 300m ascent in less than 1km, 1:3.
A well deserved breather; looking down on Grisedale Tarn.
But the view from the summit cairn is worth the toil; this is the best view of St. Sunday Crag, in my opinion.
Ants on Striding Edge - busy place on a Sunday.
Catsycam from Helvellyn summit cairn.
The newly built cairn on Raise with Skiddaw in the distance.
