Esk Pike

Overview
Height: 2,903 Feet - 885 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 237 075
Area: Southern
Ordnance Survey: OL6
Wainwright Guidebook: Four

The outstanding feature is a lengthy south ridge, bounded by the River Esk westwards, and to the east, by Yeastyrigg Gill and Lingcove Beck: a ridge with many abrupt crags.

Did it but stand alone, away from such enticing neighbours, Esk Pike would rank highly among the really worth while mountain climbs.
