Did from Grasmere past Easdale Tarn and up the slope to the left of the top. IMHO the top isnt the one with the Cairn on, according to my gps the rock to the W is 1m Higher. Then went on to Great and Little Castle How, and back to Grasmere past Blindtarn MossWayne Mac05/01/2019

Woke up late for this one (07:07) so upo quick to get the traditional Maccies breakfast and off we headed to Grasmere. Parking in the village centre and heading down Easedale Road for Sour milk Ghyll. Lovely walk to the waterfalls down and along the river. After weeks of heavy rainfall the waterfalls were looking amazing Bec was in her element walking up past the falls before reaching the absolutley stunning Easdale Tarn. It was like being on a different planet. From here though is were is got hard and plans B and C where going to be needed. From the tarn the plan should have been to cross the beck to then head straight up tarn crags but because of the rainfall the normally easy stepping stones were under a foot of water. So we changed plan and lost Silver how and decided to go up Blea rigg around to Codale tarn and up to tarn crags. So off we went. It was very boggy and quite hard graft. Stopping for a hot chocolate just before the summit. At the top when another problem arose! Which Scotty 2 Hotty08/12/2018
