5th May 2008 - Helm Crag
Fantastic, sunny day. Started at Grasmere for 6-7 miler up (and up) Helm Crag (1300ft), along to Gibson Knott and the seemingly never-ending ridge walk to Moment Crag and the long descent to Greenburn.
It is quite a tough walk as the 3 miles on the ridge is a constant 'scramble'. But it's wonderful too!

|The next summit is called the Howitzer|
|Another summit, another cairn.|

|Finally we reached the end of the ridge and made our way down to Greenburn|
