This was a visit to the north side of the valley extending NW from Grasmere on a wet and not very photo friendly day.
Ascent was via a well constructed walkers path up Helm Crag.
Helm Crag: The Lion or was it the Lamb had the sun on it.

The north side of the valley is relatively easy without much up and down.
General view of the valley.

The return to Grasmere initially follows the Coast to Coast walk.
Two HF leaders: Pete and Mel.
This particular walk had two excellent leaders.
