Dollywaggon Pike

Overview
Height: 2,810 Feet - 858 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 346 130
Area: Eastern
Ordnance Survey: OL5
Wainwright Guidebook: Two

Like most of the high fells south of Stakes Pass, Dollywagon Pike exhibits a marked contrast in its western and eastern aspects. To the west, uninteresting grass slopes descend to Dunmail Raise almost unrelieved by rock and scarred only by the wide stoney track gouged across the fell by the boots of generations of pilgrims to Helvellyn.
