Starting from Hartsop village, it's a short steep climb up to the top of Hartsop Dodd.

Then there's a long steep descent, with some scrambling, to the pass at Threshthwaite Mouth, and a steep ascent up to Thornthwaite Crag.

A long grassy ridge leads northwards from here to Gray Crag, and then the path drops down to a track which leads back into Hartsop.
