From Lonscale Pike. Contoured surprisingly trodden north rim of Lonscale Pike and dropped straight to col full of deep snow. Pleasant mini ridge looking into the lost wilderness that is the northern fells. Descended to Cumbria Way and followed the icy path to the road and then back to Millbeck in the gorgeous winter dusk. 4.5 hours.Wycombe Wanderer10/12/2017

Lonscale Pike - Lonscale Fell - Burnt Horseronaldo33330/01/2016
From Sale How. Surprisingly fine ridge: grassy slope to NW and steep heathery crag and scree to SE, spoilt only by the fence that runs along its length. There are a couple of high points. The craggy end of Lonscale Fell dominates the scene. Easy descent to the Skiddaw House path then back to Latrigg c/pk, with a lot of tired looking hill-runners coming towards me!Aye Jimmy19/09/2015
Final day in the Lakes. On a round of 7 hills from car park at end of Gale Road: Lonscale Fell, Lonscale Pike, Burnt Horse, Sale How, Skiddaw Little Man, Skiddaw Lesser Man and finally Jenkin Hill. Steep descent from Lonscale Pike, which looked stunning from here.jonglew22/03/2015
