|Name of walk||Helm Crag|
|Date of walk||2008-03-19|
I took this week off work to do the garden and make the most of the good weather. Janet wanted to go to Hayes Garden Centre at Ambleside today, so as rain was forecast tomorrow and I`d completed all the weeding we decided to kill two birds with one stone and go to Grasmere and climb Helm Crag (1229ft) too.
We walked the dogs through Grasmere and took the path to Allan Bank (Wordsworth`s house) next to the Miller Howe Cafe. Helm Crag from Allan Bank.

The route to Far Easedale.
There were lots of walkers around today. Some were contemplating climbing to the summit.
Janet, Poppy and Miffy and I had lunch looking over Dunmail Raise to the Helvellyn range. Everyone "ooed and arred" at Miffy as she is so tiny. (Next to Janet's feet)
