Lingmoor Fell is a rocky, fairly low mountain between Little and Great Langdale. The summit offers spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, including the Langdale Pikes and also down as far as Lake Windermere. The route is only short and can be completed easily in two hours by a fit walker. It starts off in the National Trust car park by Blea Tarn and follows a steep path up to Brown How, which is the summit of Lingmoor Fell. The route up offers some of the best views of Blea Tarn and Wrynose Fell opposite.

From the summit the route follows an undulating rocky path along the top of the fell over to Side Pike. Side Pike is a rocky outcrop about 50m above the path and the route round takes you through 'Fat Man's Agony', which is a narrow crack In the rocks and the only way round to the western side of Side Pike. After admiring the amazing views of Great Langdale from Side Pike the route heads down to the road and along a well-constructed footpath round Blea Tarn and back to the car park.
