[/column] [column col=”2/3″] [space height=”20″] Orrest Head is a fell on the eastern shores of Windermere. Being the first fell Wainwright climbed, he described it as “our first ascent in Lakeland, our first sight of mountains in tumultuous array across glittering waters, our awakening to beauty”. On the summit is a panoramic view of key Lakeland fells including the Old Man of Coniston, Scafell Pike, Great Gable, Fairfield and the Langdale Pikes. It’s typically climbed directly from the town of Windermere with an easy path to reach the summit, ideal for those late evening sunset shots. Location: 54.386406,-2.903359 [/column] [space height=”0″]
