    11.26 miles, 3,243 feet, 3 hours 39 minutes: Traveller's Rest - Far Easedale - Easedale Tarn - Sergeant Man - High Raise - Calf Crag - Steel Fell - Traveller's Rest. Sunshine and clouds, no rain, a cold wind at times, terrain mainly dry. I did not come across many walkers on the fells, though the car parks and town are very busy.

    I had not done this route before, but will certainly do it again.

    12.04 miles, 3,824 feet, 3 hours 53 minutes: Traveller's Rest - Grasmere - Far Easedale - Easedale Tarn - Codale Tarn - Sergeant Man - High Raise - Crag Fell - Steel Fell - Traveller's Rest. So similar to yesterday, but starting off going into Grasmere, then on the other side of Easedale Tarn, and taking in Codale Tarn. Overcast, the cloud base was at about 2,000 feet, a very strong wind on top, no rain, terrain wet/damp and slippery. Not cold, despite the wind. I only saw 10 others on the fells. Town remains busy.

    I had not been on the Codale Tarn path before - it is all a bit vague once past the tarn, until Sergeant Man comes into view. Codale Tarn looks more interesting from a distance rather than close up.

    The LDMT went around that area a few years back (2018?). I recall running along the side of Coledale Tarn at one point.

    That whole area east of High Raise/Sargeant Man,and west of Easedale Tarn/Tarn Crag, seems confusing and a number of paths/trods which aren't on maps.

    Doing my final Wainwright last year, attempted a direct route from the head of Wythburn valley across to Pavey Ark, and found it very challenging in zero visibility.

    Yes, 2018. There was a control at the sheepfold just to the north of the tarn. I remember my leg disappearing into a bog over my knee somewhere around there. Was definitely wet underfoot that day.
