Wow, unreal trip. Weather was unbelievable and views were the best I’ve seen in the Lakes! Really challenging but super rewarding hike. Couldn’t ask for more.

A great loop of Pillar from Wasdale Head. Arrive early as the parking area usually gets pretty busy. The route includes a steep scree path and amazing views on a clear day at the top. Ensure you are prepared (crampons & ice axe) if there is snow/ace.
