A very rewarding winter walk from Grasmere. During the winter months, the village of Grasmere is a good place to begin a walk, especially any routes heading westerly or northerly; the low-lying sun takes a while to start its day, but the wide open vale warms up much earlier than some of the narrower valleys. With the sun on our backs we follow Far Easedale Gill to its upper waterfalls, and then return back to Grasmere via the mile-long ridge that includes Calf Crag, Gibson Knott and Helm Crag.
