A run up Grisedale Pike this evening - up via Kinn End and down The Grind. A bit cool on top but overall good conditions.
|5.6 miles in 1hr 18mins|
We started off at the car park just a little way up the Whinlatter Pass. This gave me an opportunity to check out the drains and other work we did on a recent Fix the Fells work party.
|drains bedding in very nicely. The path looks well formed and neat|
We ran most of the way until the steep rocky section. It was getting a bit cold and windy so we didn't hang around on top. We descended via The Grind: a steep descent but good fun. At the bottom, after a slight diversion where we considered following one of the MTB tracks, we got back onto the road and ran down a fair way before picking up a nice track which came out at the Hope Memorial Camp. From here it was a short run back up the hill to the car.
