“One of the great hills in England”
Review of Great Gable

Reviewed March 18, 2012

Surrounded by fantastic views of many of the best known fells, Great Gable's a heart pumping fell walk.
Ascent was in sun but chilly at the top followed by hail for 10 minutes then rain, and back to sun. Always be prepared for every weather type!
Clear pathway up Green Gable at first then onto Great Gable. But the descent was marred by scree having overrun the path we intended to take so it got hairy on the way down. Make sure you go on the defined routes and don't follow out of date maps like we did!
Great sense of achievement at the end and some fantastic panoramic photos to keep the memory alive.
