Skew Gill is a tremendous gash in the Wasdale side of Great End with proportions little inferior to those of Piers Gill. The floor of the ravine is littered with stones of all shapes and sizes which can be negotiated by agile walkers, but in the upper reaches the bed of the gill is composed of naked rock at an easy angle, calling for care; the final climb out, round a corner is rather steeper. The sides of the ravine are loose; it is important to keep throughout in the company of the stream. In good conditions this may be regarded as a way for experience scramblers.
