Photos - Wasdale and Eskdale

(43 products)
Home to England's highest mountain (Scafell Pike), deepest lake (Wastwater) and voted Britain's Best View a couple of years ago, Wasdale is one of the more ruggedly wild and mountainous areas of the Lake District and probably my favourite area. Wasdale is also attributed as being the place where rock climbing first began as a sport, after the first ascent of Napes Needle on Great Gable in 1886. The Mosedale Round which starts from Wasdale Head is one of my favourite Lake District circular walks.
