Grisdeale Pike, via the Kinn Ridge
Please note the minimum sponsorship pledge is £250 when you join this event.
Join us in June 2022 to scale Grisedale Pike at night all in aid of St Mary's Hospice.
Miles: 8 Peaks: 1 Duration: 5-6 Hours
This is the Hard option and a good level of hill fitness is required. Please don't hesitate to contact us to speak about your suitability to this event. There is a small element of exposure and loose terrain underfoot to be tackled on this route
There's no getting around the fact that the direct route up Grisedale Pike from Braithwaite is steep, but it's also fantastic! The Kinn Ridge leads to the summit of Grisedale PIke from the North East and narrows nicely towards the summit. Fitness and composure are required to tackle the loose stones of the narrowing path as you near the top of this pointy peak. The ddescent route will be via easier tracks to Coledale Hause, and then the Coledale Valley mine track.
By participating in this event it is expected that you should do some additional fundraising for St Mary's Hospice. Upon booking you will receive a download link, in which there is a pack which will give tips on how to fundraise. You can check out the fab work that the charity does by visiting their website: http://www.stmaryshospice.org.uk/
