Christine Shepherd walked up Grasmoor on October 25th, 2007 [from/via/route] Walked from Lanthwaite Green using walk c256. [with] On my own [weather] Bright Autumn sunshine - My descent on this walk was very tentative as it was my first big walk after breaking three ribs when I tripped on the descent from Fairfield a month earlier. Climbed again from Lanthwaite Green via Whiteside 22.5.18 Climbed again on a stunning Autumn day 11.11.23 using walk c246. I enjoyed the walk down Liza beck for the most part though it is long & there are a few tricky bits. It was great to land back at the car without any road walking.

Richard Fulcher summited Grasmoor on May 28th, 2023 [from/via/route] We parked in the small car park at Cinderdale Common, from where we started the climb up the Lad Hows ridge. The path was clear but tricky in places due to the steepness & loose rock/ gravel. After nearly 2 hours of climbing & rests we reached the summit of Grasmoor. From there we retraced our steps a little & then descended to Wandope Moss & then up to the summit of Wandope itself. From Wandope we followed a clear path to Whiteless Pike via the Whiteless Edge ridge. We then followed the path down the fell, steep in places with loose rock & gravel, to find the path back down to the car along the Rannerdale valley. [with] Jen [weather] Sunny & warm, windy in places on the tops.

From here it was just a case of following the narrow ridge around to Hopegill Head down Sand Hill to Coledale Hause. From here I headed South to the top of Wandope Moss then headed West up on to the summit of Grasmoor. I then back tracked to Wandope & proceeded South along Whiteless Edge on to Whiteless Pike. Continued South to Whiteless Breast before eventually turning West & climbing the ridge to Rannerdale Knotts. From here I dropped down to the B5289 & followed the road back to my car. [with] On my Own [weather] Clear hot sunny day with little or no breeze.
