From Buttermere YHA to Wandope via Whiteless Pike and Edge. On up to Grasmoor dropping down to Codale Hause and up to Hopegill Head and along to Whiteside. The decent from Whiteside was heavily eroded and very loose. Would definitely do the route in reverse if I were to do it again. Met Adam Nolan [Cyclewise] who gave me a lift back to the YHA, saving me 30 mins of road walking at the end. Started 1530 and got down to the road at 2200 to avoid the extreme heat 27-29 degrees. Stunning evening with a lovely cool breeze.Butty19/06/2017
