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. The north side of the valley is relatively easy without much up and down. The return to Grasmere initially follows the Coast to Coast walk.This particular walk had two excellent leaders.
