Wasdale Pike is a summit of the Shap Fells of Westmorland, on the eastern side of the massif overlooking the broad pass in which the A6 road, the railway and the M6 motorway run.

The Wasdale Beck rises on the slopes of the Pike, at Wasdale Head. The Wasdale Horseshoe, a route devised by Alfred Wainwright, runs over the summit.
