This is my favourite route up Skiddaw because it encompasses the valley walk to the east of Lonscale Fell which is seldom busy. I would recommend for this reason you do it anticlockwise
Park at Underskiddaw car park NY281254 near Underscar hotel
Contiinue south on defined path to Little Man and on back to car park. (this part will be busy)

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
