Steep and sudden, Grasmoor rises tall above Buttermere and is one of the Lakes’ most underrated mountains. The north face is steep and sheer, the south slopes steep and grassy, and the summit a crow’s-nest that offers vertiginous views to the west – accentuated by the fact that this is the last big mountain before the Lake District slides into the Irish Sea.

Best route: a steep but beautiful and very direct ascent  from Crummock Water (NY162192) via Lad Hows.
