Hopegill Head - Grassmoor - Whiteless Pike

Starting from Lanthwaite Farm, a fairly steep climb ( involving a tiny bit of a scramble ) brings us up to Whiteside (720m) and hopefully a dramatic ridge walk along to Hopegill Head (770)and possibly a short detour to Grizedale Pike (791)before dropping down to Coledale Hause and up onto Grassmoor (852)which should give good views over Crummock Water and Buttermere before winding back down along Whiteless Edge and Pike (660)towards Buttermere and a gentle finish along the shore of Crummock Water.
