The Lake District National Park is such a vast area, it is difficult to know where to start! Here are some mountains starting with the highest........
Scafell Pike 3210ft
This is a steep rocky mountain from every side, but not technically difficult. From the summit on a clear day you have wonderful views as far as Scotland and Ireland. The shortest route is from Wasdale Head, but it can be climbed from Borrowdale or even the Langdales.
The second highest mountain in England but much more inaccessible than Scafell Pike. A difficult climb in winter because of the ice and snow and for rock in the summer months. This was where rock climbing in England is said to have begun. One of England's finest mountains.
Great Gable 2949ft
A challenging mountain on all sides, it has something for both walkers and rock climbers and can be approached from either Borrowdale or Wasdale Head. Again, amazing views all over the Lake District.
This mountain is similar to Crinkle Crags(below). It is usually climbed from the Langdale valley and is a popular day out. The main tourist path is not difficult, but the summit is rocky and the weather can close in so the path is not clear.
Crinckle Crags 2816ft
A fairly challenging mountain and with wonderful views of most of the Lake District. An interesting ridge walk full of character.
Coniston Old Man 2633ft
This is a popular walk as it not at all difficult. The old copper mine works can be seen and you can park part of the way up. Again, sensational views but the clouds can descend very quickly.
An interesting mountain which rises steeply from the head of Borrowdale. It has a complicated summit with many small tarns and rocky outcrops. The difficulty of ascent varies according to the direction taken, ranging from walking to technical scrambling. Overshadowed in popularity by its higher neighbours and as such an often tranquil place to visit.
Langdale Pikes 2403ft
Spectacular craggy mountains, they dominate the view from the top of Lake Windermere and the surrounding area. There are three main Pikes - Pavey Ark (2288ft), with its huge vertical cliff very popular with rock climbers. - Harrison Stickle (2403ft), the highest of the Pikes and an imposing dark tower of rock. - Pike O'Stickle (2323ft), a tapering dome of rock for a summit. Although very rocky in nature their ascents aren't too difficult if the main tourist paths are followed. For the more experienced mountaineer the ascent of Jack's Rake on Pavey Ark is a must (grade 1 scramble). For rock climbers the crags of Pavey Ark, Gimmer crag, Raven Crag, and White Ghyll are the most popular.
