Things to do - Scafell Pike
Scafell Pike is a serious mountain with changeable weather conditions at any time of the year. You should always be carrying the right gear and know how to use it, particularly your map and compass.
Those taking part in the national Three Peaks Challenge should research and keep to the codes of practice that sets out guidelines to ensure that the potential negative effects of the Three Peaks Challenge are minimised.
This can be approached from the Langdale side or by travelling to Wastwater and climbing from Wasdale Head.
The start of the walk, the Wasdale Valley will be enough to satisfy the hunger of any sight seeking walker. Wasdale is a remote valley on the far western side of the Lake District surrounded by dramatic mountain scenery and containing England's deepest lake Wast Water.
Despite its short length this route is rarely used by those doing the Three Peaks Challenge as its geographical location adds a fair few hours driving to a challenge.
This route includes an exciting scrambling section up to the Mickledore col between Scafell Pike and its neighbour Scafell. This can be avoided in bad weather or by those doing this route as part of the Three Peaks Challenge.
On the descent via Lingmell the views towards Great Gable over Piers Gill are breathtaking.
The end of the walk takes a diversion to the excellent Wasdale Head Inn. Here you can sit in front of the wood fire in winter or sunny beer garden in summer and eat big portions of tasty food washed down with local ales.
