A shorter version of the “Mosedale round” also listed. The descent off before Yewbarrow is a steep alternative that saves time but not your knees!

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.

A great round, but hot in the summer it’s one with little water so make sure you take enough. Adding in Kirk Fell isn’t the most fun route up, but gives more stunning views for your investment (and a fun scramble down) and in balance is worth it if you fancy a longer day.
