Climb Scafell Pike

Guided Walk to the Summit of England’s Highest Mountain

The Most Spectacular Mountain Challenge in the Country

Climbing Scafell Pike
Scafell Pike is the highest mountain in England, standing at an impressive 978m above sea level. Reaching its rocky summit and seeing the magical panorama of the beautiful Lakeland Fells unfold before you in all directions is an incredible feeling, whatever your level of expertise. Its rocky summit and the barren landscape around is wonderfully remote, and the feeling of being somewhere really special is unmistakable.

From your lofty position, Wastwater, the deepest lake in England, will be laid out in all its glory to the west, safe within the rugged protection of te glaciated valley surrounding it. To the north, you’ll be able to see some of the other giants of England as you look across to Broad Crag, Ill Crag and beyond to the formidable looking Kirk Fell. An exceptional reward for your hard work!

Choose from the routes below:

Wastwater

Wasdale

Difficulty level: Fair / Moderate
This is the shortest route up to the summit of Scafell Pike. It heads straight up from the northern edge of Wastwater, England’s deepest lake, along the well-developed rocky trail all the way up to the top. Views down to the sparkling waters of Wastwater and the dramatic crags dominating the skyline behind are enough of an excuse to stop and catch your breath!

Walking up Scafell Pike Rock

Corridor Route

Difficulty level: Moderate
Starting at the little hamlet of Seathwaite, nestled in the Borrowdale Valley, this route includes some more challenging terrain than the Wasdale route. A real highlight of the day is traversing along the great bouldery flanks of Great End and Broad Crag on the famous Corridor Route.

Langdale

Langdale

Difficulty level: Moderate / Hard
The route from Langdale is longer than the other options, but the ascent is much more gentle. The views are simply incredible, and the paths can be quieter than the alternatives. This alone gives the route a sense of calm, making it a wonderful way to approach the summit. Some difficult terrain will still be crossed, and the boulder field we cross to reach the summit requires care.

Scafell Pike by night

Scafell Pike by starlight

Difficulty level: Hard
Take the challenge of climbing to 978m, the highest point of England, with the illumination of the stars to guide you. The sense of achievement of reaching the summit of Scafell Pike during the night is amazing, and the reward is watching a spectacular light show as the sun creeps above the horizon to reveal England’s highest mountains.
