Key information: Pillar

    • This great craggy mass between Ennerdale and Upper Wasdale has huge and gorgeous views (some of the Lakes' best).
      • It is a demanding walk, from Wasdale or Ennerdale, and you can (if you are able) ascend by the thrilling, exposed, High Level Path, or the Ennerdale side. An unforgettable scramble, on risky scree, it should not be attempted in bad weather.
        • There are no less than 25 inspiring Cicerone guide books on the Lake District (their speciality)! Have a look at their website. Find relevant books by using Amazon search function:

        • See our Lake District page for further photos and general and practical information.
