Wainwright Guidebook: Seven

Ridge walkers on the more frequented western fells will occasionally notice the isolated summit of Lank Rigg appearing on the skyline and almost certainly will need to refer to the map to determine its identity, for this is a fell most visitors have never heard of and few know sufficiently well to recognise on sight.
