Great Gable

Start point: Wasdale Head (NY 187 088)

Wasdale Head – Kirk Fell (171) – North Top of Kirk Fell (172) – Great Gable (173) – Moses Trod – Wasdale Head

Weather: Mostly sunny, cold wind.

Today’s walk was a visit to two of the giants of Wasdale – Kirk Fell and Great Gable. I took the direct route up to Kirk Fell from Wasdale Head, a sickeningly steep climb, ‘the steepest in Lakeland’ as Wainwright described it.
