Grasmoor

Overview
Height: 2,791 Feet - 852 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 175 203
Area: North Western
Ordnance Survey: OL4
Wainwright Guidebook: Six

Nature never uses straight lines in her designs, but has come remarkably close to doing so in fashioning this arête and the approach to it from the gill along the edge of the scree. A plumb line dropped from the summit to the valley would lie over the route almost exactly. This is very noticeable from the top of Whiteside.

There is no difficulties in the ascent. The rock slab is set at an easy gradient but is greasy and needs care. The views down the crags from the arête are tremendous.
