Great day out with family, even grandson did well , good maps well clear of tracks , will do it again even me been sixty

Steep up and down, but great view of the lake all throughout.

This route is described elsewhere under a different name with more reviews. It’s basically The shortest and least pleasant way up. It’s a prerequisite to actually know what you’re doing with a map and compass. ...as well as having them with you as the weather changes at the drop of a hat. The route finding near the summit can be poor. Boots people - it’s a rough hill and far too many people get carried off by MRT.

Probably the most tedious route up to England’s highest point. It is the quickest and the one requiring the least technical skill, but yet a serious undertaking (and often underestimated).

Good navigation skills are a prerequisite as the top is a nightmare if the cloud comes in (and it does rapidly, even in the summer). Trainers and walking shoes aren’t a good enough replacement for boots here - despite good paths, it is a rough, serious mountain.

Very nice hike, at times a little rough with ankle biting rocks, but very manageable. I went up towards Great Gable and decided that I had enough time to climb that one as well. It was a bit extra at 1500 feet to 2800 feet, and back down again, but I did have all day. Then went around the back side of Scafell Pike (although the corridor route looked like a good way to go). I lucked out and had a day with great views, and greatly enjoyed the high point of England. Coming back down along the route in this map was quite beautiful, with creek flowing, and all the sheep nearby made my day something unique for this American!

Good fun. Not toooo hard, but easy to get lost when the clouds come over so stick to the path. I recommended doing a loop round up to the path south of Great Gable, and down the valley back to Wasdale and end at the pub for a quick refreshment
