4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

Not a difficult or steep climb... and the views over Windermere and beyond to the Langdale and Scafell ranges are stunning

“Pleasant walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

A pleasant walk which can be taken at any pace and plenty of benches to rest whilst climbing up or down.
Views are wonderful, but pick a clear day and preferably not windy as unfortunately we got the views but the winds were very strong and very cold at the top!
