04 07 2008 - Walk and photos - Grisedale Pike, Eel Crag and Sail with Paul D.


Walk first completed August '87 with Richard, George, Paul W, David and Andrew. We started from Braithwaite on a very bright and sunny day. We climbed up to Grisedale Pike and then along Hobcarton Crag to Hopegill Head before crossing over Sand Hill to  Eel Crag. At this point the warm weather got the better of me and I needed a long rest while Richard went off  on his own to scamper up Grasmoor. I don't know what had happened to the rest of the party at this point but I remember us all being together as we descended via Sail and Outerside back down to Braithwaite.
