Gategill Fell is one of Blencathra's child summits, located at the top of Knott Halloo.

Wainwright recorded more routes of ascent for Blencathra than any other fell. Blease Fell and Scales Fell provided easy walking on grass and fast routes of descent. Gategill Fell he noted as dull until the final arĂȘte is reached, while Hallsfell and Doddick Fell both received praise.
