Lakeland Four Passes route

The 1st pass takes you to Sty Head Tarn between the Scafell Massif and Great Gable before dropping to the beautiful but always dramatic Wasdale with Cumbria's deepest lake. Onto the 2nd which is the often underestimated Black Sail Pass & the 3rd Scarth Gap, which happens to be the easiest ascent of the day & gives views of Haystacks, Wainwrights resting place to the right. The 4th is an old miners path and is probably the hardest of the day taking you to the top of Honisters Pass before returning down to the village hall.
