“One can forget even a raging toothache on Haystacks” ― Alfred Wainwright
…Though you will never forget the experience and the amazing views that reward you from all the effort to get here!
On a clear day this ridge line from Red Pike through to Haystacks presents the best views in the Lake District. In my humble oppinion, they’re also the best views in the UK, and further afield too! Everything you need for the perfect visuals is here. The distant pale blue of the Irish Sea. The shadows in the dimple of fields and fells across Buttermere. The mirrorlike glare of Crummack Water. The mini-Toblerone from Bowfell through Scafell Pike. The randomness of Herdwicks nonchalantly munching the grass. And who can forget the smiles of your companion as they savour it all with you!
