Sun 10 April - Pike o' Blisco to Great End and everything in between!

Meet at bus stop near ODG at 9:30

Will involve doing the bad step on the Crinkle Crags (the right way) but you can avoid it easily if needed.

Grade - about 3 to 4

You can do as much or as little as you want since there are about 4 places to cut the walk short if you want then meet up at the ODG for drinks at the end.

There will be a bit of ascent on this so please bear this in mind.

Time - I took 5 1/2 hours but I was on a real mission that day so I expect to take it slower probably about 7 to 7 1/2 hours!!

Please note the early start is to try and get the free parking places in the layby near that little bridge or part way up the hill to Little Langdales. Failing that the only parking is in the LDNP or National Trust parking near Stickle Tavern and limited parking near ODG.
