WALK NOTES

Grasmere - Easedale - Sourmilk Gill - Easedale Tarn - Blea Rigg - Codale Tarn - Tarn Crag - Sourmilk Gill - Easedale - Grasmere

Starting from Grasmere on a cloudy morning I set off for Easedale. There were not many walkers around today as the forecast was for rain later during the day. After walking through Easedale I arrived at Sourmilk Gill Waterfall. There was plenty of water cascading down the waterfall today. I carried on to Easedale Tarn and then to Blea Crag and Blea Rigg. The cloud had cleared most of the lower tops by now giving good views in most directions. My route then took me down the slopes near Belles Knott, across to Codale Tarn and then up to Tarn Crag with its true top and viewpoint cairn. It had now started to rain and in fact it rained all the way back to Grasmere. My return was down the ridge (through tall and wet bracken) across Greathead Crag to near Sourmilk Gill Waterfall where I had to ford the Gill. I then retraced my steps through Easedale and back to Grasmere.
