Sergeant Man



Grid Reference: NY 28647 08896
Height: 730 metres/2395 feet
"Sergeant Man is so prominent an object and offers so compelling a challenge that it is often given preference over the main fell (High Raise)."
A Wainwright

A wonderful rocky outcrop on the south eastern edge of the High Raise Plateau Sergeant Man gives excellent views to the south west, especially over Stickle Tarn and across the Langdale Pikes.

A great ridge route leads to Sergeant Man from the Silver How and Blea Rigg ridge from either Grasmere or the Langdale Valley.

A short walk from the summit of Sergeant Man is High Raise, the highest peak in the Central Lake District, although a wonderful viewpoint of the high fells Sergeant Man is a much more rewarding top with it's rocky summit.
