Pass through Stool End Farm at the top end of Great Langdale and head up to Oxendale and cross the beck before taking a steady climb beside Browney Gill.
You will end up at Red Tarn and from here you head northwest across some peaty grassland. The scrambling then begins as you head up between Crinkle Crags and Bowfell.
You then pass an unmistakable feature known as Great Slab. From here it is then a short walk to one of the most shapely summits in the whole of Lakeland.
Alfred Wainwright’s verdict:
“Crinkle Crags is much too good to be missed.”
