The summit of Wandope and its tremendous view of Robinson
What Wainwright said:

"There is no mountain not worth climbing, and any summit above the magic figure of 2,500ft might be expected to attract fellwalkers in large numbers. To some extent, Wandope does this, but only because the top almost gets in the way of a popular triangle tour based on Buttermere".

Despite its grassy, sloping appearance from Grasmoor, Wandope is an impressive sight when viewed from the the valley of Sail Beck. Though not particularly prominent from below, Addacomb Hole provides a fine example of a symmetrical hanging valley and is located on the eastern slopes. The headwalls of Addacomb Hole are 700ft high.

The highlights of the view include Robinson and the Newlands valley as well as the Scafells in the distance.
