A Few Facts About Angletarn Pikes - North

Location -
Angletarn Pikes stands on the western arm of the long horseshoe ridge which surrounds the Martindale catchment a system of valleys draining north into Ullswater. The adjacent fells on this ridge are Place Fell to the north and Brock Crags to the south. Beda Fell a subsidiary ridge also juts out into Martindale from Angletarn Pikes. This separates the heads of Boredale and Bannerdale.

Summit And View -
Angletarn Pikes takes its plural from the two rocky towers at the summit separated by perhaps 200 yards of peaty bog. The northern top is the true summit (Wainwright And Birkett Summit) the other being some six feet lower. The southern top (Birkett Summit) is compensated by a clear view of Angle Tarn described by Wainwright as among the best of Lakeland tarns. The wider view stretches from the Helvellyn range to the spine of the Far Eastern Fells across Martindale.
