Great gable iconic fell in Cumbria

Great Gable from Green gable summit

It was many years ago that I stood on the banks of Waswater and looked up at the pyramid shaped mountain Great Gable and wanted to climb it, its the familiar view that the National Trust use for their logo. I was on my own for this walk with Gail walking down in the valley around Buttermere, something I don’t recommend for gable due to the nature of the climb and just hoped I could tag onto someone just to keep an eye open -
