Richard Fulcher conquered High Raise (Langdale) on October 2nd, 2022 [from/via/route] Parked in the layby on the A591 opposite a footpath down to Grasmere. Set off through Grasmere & the Easedale Road & then followed the bridle path to Stythwaite Steps, turned left up Stenners Crag & then left up Greathead Crag & on to Tarn Crag. From there we followed a stream up to Codale Head. I continued on up to High Raise (because it was there!) & then joined Jen at Sergeant Man. We then descended down & across to Blea Rigg. The descent from Blea Rigg was initially tricky (probably went the wrong way) but became more manageable as we reached Easedale Tarn. The walk from the tarn & back to the car was on well made paths (Lakes style i.e. boulders) & was a slog! [with] Jen [weather] Sunshine & showers, occasional gusts of wind. At times I was hot, freezing cold, battered by wind & then sometimes no wind & just right! - A tiring but rewarding walk.
