The summit looking to The Combe and Derwentwater
The direct ascent of Glaramara is usually started from the Borrowdale road midway between Rosthwaite and Seatoller. From here it is possible to ascend on either of the ridges to the east or west of Combe Gill, the east ridge being the best because it allows for the climbing of Rosthwaite Fell and its subsidiary summit of Dovenest Top. On this route two other tops of Glaramara, Combe Door Top and Combe Head, are passed over. Both of these are Nuttalls.

Combe Head gives fine views down into Combe Gill and from here it is short climb to the twin summits of Glaramara.
