Grasmoor via Lad Hows with a return via Wandope and Whiteless Pike

I have visited Grasmoor many times before, but never via the Lad Hows route. I usually venture into the Coledale Fells from the Braithwaite side - So today I drove round into the Central lakes and decided to climb it from the other side and it was certainly worth it, I will walk it that way again for sure. The views back towards Crummock Water, Mellbreak and the High Stile Ridge are just stunning - It's even better on the way back down via Whiteless Pike where the whole vista is on show for you.

Unfortunately, the top of Grasmoor was above the cloud line today, so there were no views from the highest point of the day - it even got cold and drizzly which meant the waterproofs were needed for a while. But other than that, the walk was really enjoyable and as I say, one I will be doing again no doubt.
