Skiddaw has an undeserved reputation as a bit of a slog. Many people want to climb it as it tops the magic 3,000 feet mark, but if you trudge up and down the Little Man route, well, you get what you deserve. Instead, make a full day of the trip and explore some of the surrounding hills as you go. I have it on good authority from a lifelong Lake District resident that this route - via Carl Side and Ullock Pike - is the best way. So give Skiddaw the respect it deserves and do it properly!
