Scafell Pike Challenge

Scafell Pike Mar 1 — Oct 31
Sign up now

Climb England’s highest mountain to raise funds whilst helping vulnerable children, young people and families across the UK!

What to expect:

Starting and finishing at the Wasdale Head Car Park, your journey will begin through the fields on the valley floor before beginning your ascent across the open hillside, all the while following the peaceful stream of Lingmell Gill.

Turning left to gentler ground, you'll then find the terrain underfoot gets rockier while your ascent remains steady but winding all the way up to the summit.

The views from the summit of Scafell Pike are truly breath-taking:

To the south, the River Esk cuts through the tufty grass of the Great Moss.

To the west is the rocky face of Scafell and the green fields of Wasdale Valley.

To the north is the imposing peak of Great Gable and to the east is the triangular summit of Bow Fell and much of the rest of the Lake District.

We will then head back together the same way we came, to ensure that you get the time to admire the views of the western Lake District and beyond to the Irish Sea.

Dates are flexible, please get in touch to discuss.
