Wast Water in the Western Fells of the Lake District

Wast Water, one of the least visited and least developed of the Cumbrian lakes. It’s a natural lake so at the foot of the steep scree the sides of the glacial U valley slope gently in to the lake. Wasdale Head seems to be known mostly as the start of one of the routes to the summit of Scafell Pikes.
