Sheffield Pike

Sheffield Pike straddles Glenridding and Glencoyne on the eastern shore of Ullswater, and makes a good viewing point for neighbouring fells, especially the Helvellyn range (weather, as always, permitting, which it didn’t on this occasion, but see also here!). Ascent was from Glencoyne and down the Glenridding side. Note: the name of the pike has nothing to do with “The Full Monty” or anything else about the Yorkshire city: rather, it apparently derives from “sheep fold”. Distance: 4.69 miles/7.56 km; height: 2065 ft./630m.
