Blencathra and Blease Fell: Lake District Walking Routes


Distance: 5.7 miles


Ascent: 2313ft


Fells: Blencathra and Blease Fell


Blencathra 2848ft

Blease Fell 2641ft



An iconic fell that does not have to be ascended from the daunting Sharp Edge. Starting from Threlkeld, just off the A66, it is a near constant ascent to the summit.


Fantastic views over Latrigg to the Coledale and Newland Horseshoes as well as looking at the iconic humpback shape of Blencathra itself.
