The most shapely of the Coniston peaks, Wetherlam’s situation at the southern edge of Langdale makes its views extraordinary – described succinctly by Wainwright as like a ‘giant whale surfacing above waves of lesser hills.’ When you see it, you’ll agree.
Best route: brilliant when taken as part of the Greenburn Horseshoe – via Hell Gill Pike and Swirl How from Langdale (NY275013).
