The traverse of this stunningly remote cliff face above Ennerdale is considered by many to be the finest high-level mountain path in the Lake District. Its unique position between two of Lakeland’s most squirrelled-away valleys within jumping distance of the country’s highest peaks, and its Alpine character make it a superlative target with the power to surprise anyone who thinks they’ve ‘seen it all’ in the Lakes.
Best route: actually from Wasdale, as you get to see both sides of the mountain – and experience the full effect of Ennerdale emerging into view over the ridge.
