The Knott

Overview
Height: 2,423 Feet - 739 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 436 127
Area: Far Eastern
Ordnance Survey: OL5
Wainwright Guidebook: Two

The steep western slope descending from Rampsgill Head is arrested below the summit, just as the fall is gathering impetus, by a protuberance that takes shape of a small conical hill, this is The Knott, a key point for walkers in this area, and although its short side rises barley a hundred feet from the main fell, its appearance is imposing when seen from other directions especially when approached from the Hartsop Valley.
