Grains Gill storm background
The path up Grains Gill is the quickest way from Borrowdale to Esk Hause and the big Lake District fells beyond. It is also the quickest way back down after a wet night’s camping in the fells. This was the most I saw of the sun on this camping trip at Styhead Tarn.
Borrowdale can be just about be made out below with the distinctively shaped peak of Castle Crag beyond.
