Parked at roadside at Blakeley Moss via Grike, Crag Fell, Whoap and then to Lank Rigg. Descended by the track from the Whoap/Lank Rigg col, but due to snow melt had to go north upstream to cross the first main burn nearer the forest edge. Rejoined the ascent track to Grike by going up through new planting.LizH04/02/2019
