Whinlatter Pass


Whinlatter Pass

The Whinlatter Pass is a mountain pass in the English Lake District, linking the Lorton Vale with Braithwaite. To the north the pass is flanked by a fell also called Whinlatter, while to the south the Whiteside, Hopegill Head and Grisedale Pike ridge borders the pass.

A road goes over the pass, which can be icy in winter. From the top of the pass, one can set off to climb Whinlatter or Grisedale Pike. There is also a Forestry Commission tourist centre there, which is very popular.
