An hours walk from our hotel and even in the rain, well worth the effort. Stunning views over Derwent Water - easy to see why AW loved it. Don’t miss the slate quarry with its countless statues. Very eerie!

As one steadily climbs to the base of the last hurdle of the slate mound, once reaching the very top, gives one a great sense of achievement and satisfaction. If Julia Bradbury and Chris Bonnington can do it, so can YOU! Good Luck.

We walked the direct route from Rosthwaite. Parking and toilets are available at the National Trust park in the village. The route is through the farm and down a stony track towards the river. Bear right, walk along the river and the track is through a gate on the left hand side. The route is steep but very well marked with many steps so you shouldn’t get lost. Scenery is stunning the whole way up, a lot of it through wooded areas. At one point you climb over a high style so be prepared if you have a large dog with you. Towards the top is a spectacular slate spoil heap with zig zag steps cut into it. Lastly a small scramble to the summit. Superb views after a stunning climb. At the bottom you can purchase a lamb pasty at the Flock In Tearoom.

Great views. Allow a couple of hours from either Grange or Rosthwaite (which we prefer, but less wooded side). Like a mini mountain in this beautiful valley

Great views in all directions, well worth the effort. It is quite steep and care is needed in the last section.
