Cross Fell

Anciently thought to be the haunt of evil spirits, Cross Fell is the highest peak in England outside the Lake District, and it never ceases to surprise in its scale. Cross Fell itself is part of a high plateau, which proffers a fine wilderness feel and tough navigation. Listen for the local phenomenon called the Helm Wind: a channelled eastern gale given an eerie voice by the hillside gullies.

Best route: from Kirkland, a route heads up the west flank – an interesting mix of boulders and scree.
