Hardknott and Wrynose get all of the limelight, but Honister and Newlands Hause are spectacular Lake District Climbs. In this direction, they also form part of the renowned Fred Whitton Challenge. Honister, which comes first, starts under the shelter of trees, but opens out onto moorland and continues upward to the Youth Hostel and old slate mine at the summit. Newlands Hause (Official UK climb #81, length 1.9Km, height gain 205m) is beautiful, with the road clinging to the side of the picturesque valley as it climbs away from Buttermere.
