Walk Description & Map

The cloud was just touching the top of Helvellyn, no rain and the wind, whilst very strong wasn't enough to make walking difficult. We'd originally planned to include Fairfield as well but cut straight down to Grisedale Tarn instead.

Pub: The Traveller's Rest in Glenridding, very nice pub, good beer and a nice warm fire.
