The more the wind comes from the west, the more turbulent the conditions get.

 
 

Meet & Carpark:

Best is to meet and park vehicles along Glinns Road west of a small copse 400m from the junction with B822; again park clear of traffic.

 

Access:

From the parking spot head through a gate, across fields; you quickly reach the open hill side where a short but very steep ascent takes you up to a broad shoulder running from Skiddaw to the summit. You should easily pass through a band of cliffs before reaching the plateau.
