Although some class this as mountaineering, it depends on the weather. On a fine summers day it could be classed as a long hike. It is one of the classic walks in the Lake District National Park, taking in the summits of Nab Scar, Great Rigg, Fairfield, Hart Crag, Dove Crag, High Pike and Low Pike. On good clear days the views are extensive. For anyone visiting the lakes for the first time and they are fit this is a must as from the summit of Fairfield you get a grandstand panorama.

Amazing views up at the top, was blessed with a glorious Easter weekend at 24c, some scrambling if you decide to do Low Pike first and also towards the top of Fairfield
