View of Great Gable from Wasdale Head

Details

Great Gable, not the highest peak in Lakeland, but undoubtedly the best known and arguably the best loved. Its summit is reached by thousands of walkers every year, its popular crags the birthplace of British rock climbing, and its summit form is used in the badge of the Lake District National Park. Going to its summit however may not be the best way to fully appreciate this fine mountain. Instead try following the network of bridleways and passes that ring it. By doing this you will experience ever- changing views of Great Gable and explore some unexpected corners right at the very heart of the Lake District.
