Shaped like the upturned prow of a boat, Yewbarrow is second only in recognisability to Great Gable, which it’s often mistaken for as both adorn the Lake District National Park logo. The summit is transcendent as a viewpoint – and running distance from Wasdale Head Inn, which pumps Yewbarrow Ale. 

Best route: straight up the east ridge.
