Route suggestions

Route suggestion: A591 - Little Tongue - Grisedale Hause - Seat Sandal
2.7 mile / approx 2200 ft ascent
++++++++++++++++++++
Even if you never actually ended up at the top of anywhere this would still be a great route with just a little bit of everything thrown in. A short walk through the lovely countryside on the outskirts of Grasmere leads to the path above Tongue Gill. After crossing the beck the gradient eases as you make your way to Little Tongue. This in itself gives an easy going grassy ascent to Hause Riggs, here the gradient eases again and once around to Hause Moss, you have a rocky path which is quite rough under foot to contend with. Then comes the sting in the tail; the very steep and loose final clime to the summit, , , , as I said, a little bit of everything.

Route suggestion: Dunmail Raise - Raise Beck - Seat Sandal
1.8 mile / approx 1600 ft ascent
++++++++++++++++++++
This isn't the only route up Seat Sandal from the top of Dunmail Raise but this one offers more variety than the other route. The path running up the side of Raise Beck is a bit rough but doesn't present any problems for anyone who doesn't mind having to put a little effort into a walk. This section of the route if particularly impressive after periods of heavy rain. The final walk up the north end of the fell is a straightforward case of following a wall up the grassy slope.
