Angle Tarn Pikes is high and exposed detailed open fell with generally good runability.
The area is on high exposed fells so be prepared for possible severe weather. Boredale Hause is passed on the way to the start and is the best point to aim for if lost, the competition area is all to the South of this, so heading North is a good way to find your way back to Boredale Hause, or a major path leading to it. Avoid heading West as the slopes are steep but do not have extensive crags.
There are continuing footpath repairs along the route to the start being carried out by ‘Fix the fells’. Please be careful through any works and be courteous to the workforce.
