Helm Crag: In the village of Grasmere in the heart of the Lake District, Julia climbs up one of Alfred Wainwright's smallest but favorite fells. Helm Crag is defined by the collection of rock formations at its summit-a feature that has lent it the nickname "the Lion and the Lamb." The rocks make for a summit scramble as Julia finds out why this was the only summit Wainwright himself never truly reached.
