Pillar is situated above Ennerdale and at the head of Wasdale where the river Mosedale falls towards Wasdale Head, from where it is usually climbed. All other ascent routes are much further from the public road.
The so named "High Level Route", from Pillar's eastern ridge, traverses beneath the popular climbing crags of its north face past Pillar Rock before heading to the summit.
Only from the lower reaches of Ennerdale, near Ennerdale Water, does Pillar take on the shape of its name.
