The Wrynose Pass is a mountain pass in the Lake District National Park in Cumbria, England between the Duddon Valley and Little Langdale.
There is a single-track motor road over the pass, which is one of the steepest roads in England, with gradients up to 1 in 3. Its name comes from ‘pass of the stallion.’ The road continues over Hardknott Pass and goes on to Eskdale.
The pass separates the Furness Fells from the Bowfell-Crinkle Crags massif.
At the top of the Wrynose Pass is the Three Shire Stone, marking the meeting point of the historic counties of Cumberland, Lancashire and Westmorland.
