The Calf

The Howgills are a compact mountain group in eastern Cumbria on the ‘other’ side of the M6 – seen close-up by millions of people passing north and south, but climbed by the merest fraction of them. Steep, dramatic and empty, the Howgills are a fine target for even serious mountain walkers – and this, their highest point, is a serene, centrally situated place to aim for.

Best route from Gaisgill in the north, via the silent, non-Yorkshire Dales National Park area of the Howgills.
