Pillar

10 Miles Grade 1sc

Leader: David Bulman

Start: Sands 8.15am

Gatesgarth Farm Car Park 9.30am (£4 Charge)

 

 

Having considered the three starting points for Pillar i have chosen Gatesgarth Farm on the basis that there is less travelling and far less valley walking. The down side is that we climb to Scarth Gap then lose the height by dropping into Ennerdale (yes i know we walked this before!)  then we climb again to Blacksail Pass - and the return is the same! On BSP we advance up Looking Stead. I would then like to consider the "Climbers Traverse" to Pillar Rock - this is an high level exhilarating path traversing the face of the mountain where care is needed as the drop into Ennerdale is steep - this will only be considered if the weather is kind and should only be attempted by those comfortable with such surroundings. If we don't attempt it we simply continue up Looking Stead. The walk back follows the same route. Spectacular views of pretty much all the High Lakedistrict fells and a challenging day which will only happen if the weather is good so please check the web site near the time to confirm it is on or not. David. P.S. go to www. wainwrightroutes.co.uk and find Pillar route one to check out the High Level Route so you can see the traverse path.
