For many years I overlooked Yewbarrow. There was a quick (but thoroughly nasty) scree descent back down to Wasdale, after you’d been up Pillar, which seemed to make sense. After a day’s walking the further climb up to Yewbarrow seemed daunting. Actually this was psychological because the effort required is not that great and Yewbarrow, as you see here, gives you fine views across to the Scafells.
