The "Harder Walk" on the first day's walking of this HF holiday was from Derwent Bank to Grisedale Pike, via Braithwaite. In the distance is the triangular summit of Grisedale Pike. The walk is 11.5 miles with 2,550 feet of ascent.
Via a little-known path we went through the forest and up to Hobcarton End.
Thanks to Jan for this shot; L>R Sue, Ron, Peter (me), and our leader Brian, who not only lead a magnificent walk but arranged such weather when the forecast was for heavy showers. From here we went up the broad northern ridge to the summit.

A little rain fell on Siddaw as we walked back to Derwent Bank. What a great walk, excellently lead by Brian who makes it all seem so easy! Thanks again Brian.
