A nice walk from Sadgill. The field by the parking spot is not mapped as open access but the farmer told me it's fine to go through the gate and there's a stile top left corner of the field. A good, tidy path leads up beside a grassy stream way, then heads right to another stile. An ATV track heads up over Great Howe, then it's easiest to go off piste to cut across the stream diagonally upwards below Grey Crag to the summit (unless you want to bag these Wainwright things as well). It's nice (and very easy) heading north down the fence to the head of Mosedale, then west and back down the River Sprint, great views all the way.Gill20/06/2018

From Mardale Head, Haweswater: Selside Pike, Branstree, Tarn Crag, Grey Crag, Harrop Pike. Beautiful hot May Bank holiday weekend. Went to the Punch Bowl in Askham village for a meal afterwards.Lazylizzie06/05/2018
From Grey Crag we took the short but very very wet and boggy 1 mile to Tarn Crag summit. Not the most enjoyable section of mountain but quickly got to the 2nd summit of the day and an excellent summit with a survey post at the top. From here followed the path down and back into the valley which led us down the never ending Gatescarth path back to the car. Cracking start to our 6 days off.Scotty 2 Hotty02/05/2018
