Great End, The Band and Skew Gill
Great End, The Band and Skew Gill

Great End is the northern end of the Scafell range. From the south it is merely another bump to climb. The great northern face is scarred by a number of impressive gullies and is popular with climbers.

If tackling the Scafells via the Esk Hause route it can be tacked on with only a little more effort.
