Wandope

Overview
Height: 2,533 Feet - 772 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 188 197
Area: North Western
Ordnance Survey: OL4
Wainwright Guidebook: Six

There is no mountain not worth climbing, and any summit above the magic 2,500 feet might be expected to attract fellwalkers and peakbaggers in large numbers. To some extent Wandope does this, but only because the top almost gets in the way of a popular triangular tour based on Buttermere - Whiteless Pike , Eel Crag, Grasmoor - and the cairn is visited almost as a matter of course (if indeed it is noticed at all) and by the simplest of detours.
