A featured fell is my way of studying each fell in turn and recording thoughts and observations.
No other Lakeland fell is named after a Yorkshire City.
Sheffield Pike from Keldas
Gillside campsite is in the dip. Glenridding Screes flank the side of Sheffield Pike.

Mr.Wainwright must have been having an off day when he wrote about SP. Twice in his write-up he uses the word "pleasantest"; he also calls the summit a dismal, cheerless place. I think most folk would disagree with his sentiment.

Gillside Campsite from Sheffield Pike
Sheffield Pike from Glencoyne
I have traversed the top of Sheffield Pike in both directions. Great views all around on fine days. I have not climbed via Glencoyne as per SP5, I aim to do this one day, to experience "pleasantest-ness".
Where: Eastern Access from Glenridding or Glencoyne
Suggested Route: Leave Glenridding as per AW SP4 and climb the south-east ridge. Do so early one fine morning and enjoy the view to Catstycam and Helvellyn.
My Frequency: Twice.
Whilst You're There: Glenridding Dodd.
Someone Else's View: Liz Lemal's walk of 8th March 2011.
