Tough but amazing climb. Set off at 6:30am in the dark and was done by 10am. Car park gets very busy hence why I went early and there were a fair few people climbing up as I was coming back down. Beware it can be extremely windy and cold at the top! Definitely one of my favourites.

A great trail, the corridor route up to scafell pike includes a few easy scrambling sections, but nothing too serious. Note - arrive early as car parking is very limited.

Great trail when off the main road! Lovely walk along the lake and a nice tour of Windermere and Bowness.

Too much road walking but the first section along Windermere was lovely

Stunning views but it is pretty gruelling and I would not recommend going counter clockwise, there is a good amount of climbing at the top

We did this trail anticlockwise, and I think this was the better direction for me personally. As someone who's scared of heights, I didnt find this climb too challenging, and the scrambling was actually a welcome obstacle to keep me distracted. I think I would've been a lot more afraid in the other direction. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed this route!

Bit of a tough trail this, the first climb gets your legs but it’s not a race and the views are superb. It was extremely windy up top but I guess I is Oct. the climb down to hayswater is a little steep and shingly in parts. I also expected a meander around the reservoir it isn’t!! I eventually reached shap and after grabbing some essentials from the shop camped in the crown inn “small” camping area... if your first there you can also grab a pod for a couple of £ more. Showers and food were available to.

I’m so glad I made 2 hours up on days 1/2 as I soon lost them over these two killers... emotional that’s all I can say... also school boy error to save going down 250m and then back up, I chose to stay high... DONT, stick to the route the energy expelled on this short cut isn’t worth it!!! I rung the white Lion from the top of St Sunday Crag and Andy held the food open for me, again charged my phone... I camped in a nearby field... tincidentally my phone is in airplane mode and only use for all trials the shop in Patterdale opens at 8:30 and does amazing sausage sandwiches and also fresh cold ones to take away.

As my previous post showed I made 2 hours and camped at the far side of Ennerdale water on stage 1. Steep climb, but stunning walk between the steep valley. The pub in Rosthwaite only serves food 12-2:30 and from about 5:30. I arrived at 4 ish so charged my phone whilst having a coke and crisps I then proceeded half way up tomorrow’s first climb and camped and got my stove out.

Trial starts gradual, but even given the time of year once i reached the lighthouse I changed into my lightweight trousers. I’m on day 6 and currently haven’t needed my warm gear at all. The shop in cleator is closed due to Covid, and the climb up dent was a shock, ‘’ don’t know why considering lol.... at ennerdale bridge I stopped at the tea room which closes at 4 but was able tonget a brew and a scone and charge my phone... I pushed on from there to get to the end of ennerdale water and camped there... word of caution Robin Hood’s Chair is tretorious

Definitely a tough one especially on the way up. Definitely not for the faint hearted pretty steep drops either side and some climbing todo. Not one for children.
