We went up Scafell on a real hot day...maybe not the best of circumstances on hindsight. Scafell for me, with a moderate level of fitness and some troubles with feet and shins it was quite a challenge. It feels like you go up vertically the...More

Myself and my partner have just returned from walking scafell pike. This is my first mountain walk and what a challenge it was. However I’m immensely proud of myself for conquering highest mountain in England without even walking up a mountain before. We parked at...More

We did this at night from Wasdale Head. A great walk no matter what the conditions are. For all those who marked the mountain as a one or two star, shame on you. It's a mountain, great it with respect and don't attempt it unless...More

I must mention we did the three peak challenge so compared to Ben Nevis we thought Scaffel was much easier and shorter! But wow my legs felt like jelly at the end, so do some streching before you go. I just felt very safe and...More

Both my wife and myself are seasoned walkers, done a few long distance walks and climbed Ben Nevis several times and recently did Snowdon as well. Thought we'd take the slightly longer route up Scafell to make a bit more of a day of it....More

On Sunday 24th June 2018 we came to this mountain to climb to the top. This is the last highest one we hard to achieve after doing Ben Nevis and Snowdon. Stunning views over looking the lake, and other high hills, well worth climbing! 2...More

set off from Wasdale car park at 8am. Surprised to be only 7th car in car park during May half term 2018 (not like Snowdon last year, where car park was full by 7:30). Roads approaching Wasdale were single lane and hard to pass. There...More

Starting from the NT car park at Wasdale is the shortest route up Scafell Pike, but it's still a round trip of 9km with over 900m of ascent and it took us 6 hours including stops. It's a tough hard slog up and down though...More

Didn’t see any organised walks. For the easiest route go from Wasdale. We passed plenty of other people whilst walking, and the path is clearly marked.
