Pike O'Blisco

Overview
Height: 2,312 Feet - 705 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 271 041
Area: Southern
Ordnance Survey: OL6
Wainwright Guidebook: Four

This peak has great character, for shapeliness and a sturdy strength combine well in its appearance, and that splendid cairn etched against the skies at once an invitation and a challenge -while the man has no blood in his veins who does not respond eagerly to its fine-sounding swashbuckling name, savouring so much of buccaneers and the Spanish Main.
