A mountain of unmistakeable dominance over the northern Lakes, Skiddaw is from afar a brooding – but gentle – giant. Tackled from the right direction, however, Skiddaw begins to shift character into a steep, boulder-strewn monolith moated by cavernous valleys and approached by slender ridges which ascend to its wild, scree-cone summit.
Best route: via the ridge of Longside Edge, over the minor peak of Carl Side. Look left over the gaping corrie and up to the cindery top of Skiddaw on the way up.
