Great Langdale

Great Langdale

Details

The compact group of peaks that form the Langdale Pikes are amongst the most easily recognisable mountains in the Lake District. Viewed from Langdale their flanks are craggy and appear very steep, the sort of territory that appeals to climbers rather than walkers. However this is something of an illusion, for although there are plenty of crags to keep climbers happy the fells that lay between them are not as steep as they first appear - a trick of perspective. This provides adventurous walking in a very dramatic setting.

This relatively short walk reaches the main summits of the Langdale Pikes and is a superb introduction to the whole Langdale Valley.

Duration: 3 - 4 hours

Miles: 5
