Wainwrights are the 214 English peaks, known locally as fells, described in Alfred Wainwright's seven-volume Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells. They all lie within the Lake District National Park and all but one (Castle Crag) are over 1,000 feet (304.8 m) in height.
Whether you are just starting out in the outdoors and want to tick your first Wainwright, or you have already ticked a few but are struggling to tick the harder Wainwrights, AT THE EDGE MOUNTAINEERING can lead you up them all!
Below is the complete list of Wainwrights catagorised by Books and in height order. Pick a SUMMIT, get in touch and we can discuss your requirements and plan a route to accommodate your Summit and more!
(Book a Bespoke/Group course in the Lakes and decide which Wainwright's you want to tick on that course! Let me know when you contact me to book!)
