"A beautiful climb. Do it!"
A Wainwright

The imposing face of Fleetwith Pike towers above Buttermere, a magnificent mountain with spectacular views over Buttermere and Crummock Water to the west as well as over the Solway Coast beyond.

Th climb up Fleetwith Edge, direct from Gatesgarth is not as difficult as it may look, a series of easy rocky steps lead to the summit.

The northern slopes of the fell are heavily mined with Honister Mines now a major tourist attraction.
