The most wonderful weather . . . warm sunshine and clear blue skies! Also, the snow which had fallen earlier in the week. From Grasmere via Tounge Gill and Grisdale Tarn. We traversed around the tarn - slowly because the snow was quite deep and approached the summit from the north . . . a difficult climb through knee deep spring snow but the view from the top was magnificent! Descended via the SW shoulder. An amazing day where the fells looked their best.apshepherd25/03/2017

Travellers Arms (Grasmere)- Grisedale Tarn- Dollywagon Pike- Nethermost Pike- Seat Sandal- Grasmere. My 3rd visit to the top, all with companions. As with last time, it was to enjoy the long, easily graded ridge down to Grasmere. Getting to the top from the higher fells is tedious, but the ridge makes it well worthwhile. 60- mile views and sunshine.pwheeler16/09/2015
From Dollywaggon Pike. Descend back to WythburnTBR14/09/2015
Circular walk parking at Glenridding, walked on path by road to Patterdale then walked the length of Grisedale up to the tarn, bagged Seat Sandal then followed ridge to Dollywaggon Pike, Nethermost Pike, Helvellyn, Lower Man, White Side and Raise descending the Sticks Pass back to Glenridding. Perfectly clear day, from the tops you could see the Isle of Man, the Galloway Hills in Scotland and even Snowdonia in Wales.DanTrig05/09/2015
