Hike from Wasdale Head up to Great Gable. Steep assent with scree and boulders on last section.

Probably the most direct, but neither the easiest, most interesting nor most sensible route. If you’re strapped for time and running it works ok.

Other routes from the Borrowdale side generally give more interest as would adding another top like Green Gable or Pillar.
