For day one of the Fundraiser and for those up to the challenge our plan is to walk HELM CRAG (1299 ft.), GIBSON KNOTT (1379 ft.), CALF CRAG (1762 ft.) This is and Out and Back circular route from Grasmere, returning via Far Easedale Valley Its an 8.25 miles circular walk from Grasmere. Note the last 4 miles is a gradual downhill valley route direct back to Grasmere, so all the climbing and high-level stuff is in the first half of the day, before tiredness sets in.
