Pillar Rock

mountain - Up to 2 people


Pillar Rock itself sits on the flanks of Pillar, an imposing and serious place looming high above the Ennerdale valley - one of the more remote areas of the Lake District. 

This summit alludes many hill walkers in their attempts to complete their mountain ticklists - such as the Nuttall's and the Birkett's. 

​We can get you there and Slab and Notch is the route of choice. This is a moderate grade classic climb, with a big walk in and an abseil descent into Jordan Gap. 

Get in touch to plan your adventure onto Pillar Rock.
