High Pike (Scandale)

Grid Reference: NY 38734 10028
Height: 637 metres/2090 feet

"It has individuality and an interesting double summit which commands delightful views of Scandale and Dovedale."
A. Wainwright

Little Hart Crag, the rocky summit just above Scandale Pass, although far from being the highest summit in the area makes up for the lack of height with the splendid view over the Hartsop Valley to the north and Scandale to the south.

A good walk from either valley can be made by combining Little Hart Crag with the higher summits of either Dove Crag or Red Screes.
