Black Sail Pass is the main foot route between Wasdale and Ennerdale and gives access to Great Gable, Pillar and the High Stile range. It is on the Coast to Coast long distance walking route. A very remote youth hostel, formerly a shepherd’s bothy, is situated on the pass some five miles from the nearest public road.
