Lonscale Fell is situated between the massifs of Skiddaw and Blencathra. Its east peak, occasionally called Lonscale Pike due to its form, overlooks the old mining valley of Glenderaterra, with the Cumbria Way wending it's way along the steep and craggy east flank.
The easiest ascent is to include it on a walk from the car park at the end of the Gale road, but Wainwright details a couple of interesting routes on the east, and north east ridges to the east peak, the latter requiring some scrambling!
