Pike of Blisco, or according to Wainwright: Pike O'Blisco, lies between the summit of Wrynose Pass and the Oxendale branch of Great Langdale. The northwest end of the summit ridge was graced by a large conical cairn in Wainwright's time but was apparently vandalised, a much lesser cairn now stands in its place. Another cairn at the southwest end marks the lower end of the rocky ridge.
The easiest route of ascent is from the top of Wrynose pass at Three Shire Stone, alternatively the Old Dungeon Ghyll is a popular starting point for a round including Pike of Blisco, Crinkle Crags, and Bowfell and if very keen the Langdale Pikes: Rosset Pike, Harrison Stickle and Pike of Stickle.
