After the epic walk of yesterday i woke up with a spring in my step. the weather was clear with great views of the mighty great gable showing off its muscles. Set off 7ish from Overbeck bridge car park straight up to bell rib..from there the very fun scramble up to the blindingly beautiful Great Door. from there the ridge to the south summit and onwards to the true summit. cut down after this to Over Beck river and back to the car. Absolutely love this mountian. It surpassed my already high expectations of it after waiting nearly a year and weather to climb it.Scotty 2 Hotty02/04/2017
A proper mountain indeed. Steep and scrambly in places. Late afternoon start, after the sun had come out. Good views over to Scafell.AlanDStewart01/04/2017

1st hill of the day on the 5th leg of my improvised Bob Graham's round starting from the Wasdale head Inn and climbing the steep Sw end. I forgot to collect my packed lunch and lost time helping Two Americans and their UK, friend over Yewbarrow. I Also forgot about Bell Rib. Never Mind, I Will be back for Sure as it's a lovely mountain.Dazingdale10/06/2016

Great Spring weather. Mosedale Horseshoe from Wasdale Head via High Level path and Robinson's Cairn to Pillar, Scoat Fell, Steeple, Red Pike, and Yewbarrow.jonesthesteam17/04/2015
Circular walk from Bowderdale/Overbeck Bridge straight up to Bull Crag on Yewbarrow along to Stirrup Crag, didn't like the steep decent (vertigo got the better of me) so back tracked slightly dropping off to the west to pick up Dore Head. Up to Red Pike, amazing views all-around. Carried on to Haycock via Great Scoat Fell. Dropped down of off Haycock intent on bagging Seatallan however I was conscious of time so reluctantly bailed, still didn't get home until gone 2300! Stunning day for weather and views.Butty16/04/2015

Parked up at Overbeck Bridge, walk up to Yewbarrow, easy scramble up the eastern side, then bite to eat on the summit. Scramble down Dore Head, then did the round of Red Pike, Scoat Fell, a detour up to Steeple, then back round to Pillar, before a gentle stroll down to the wadale Head Inn for a pint! Lot of people around in the Lakes due to the interest of the 2 Lancaster bombers flying over. Great weather for it as well.GaryG07/09/2014
