Scafell Pike

Start point: Wasdale Head (NY 187 086)

Wasdale Head – Piers Gill – Lingmell (179) Scafell Pike (180) – Lord’s Rake – Scafell (181) – Wasdale Head

Weather: A grey day. Very cold wind on the tops.

Today’s walk is an ascent to the roof of England with a climb to Lingmell via Piers Gill and an ascent of Scafell via Lord’s Rake. Both of these routes require a certain amount of scrambling and Lord’s Rake is at present considered unsafe due to the large, loose boulder lying in wait to crash down at the top of the first section. There are warning signs in place at the bottom to warn of this – any ascent using Lord’s Rake is at your own risk…
