The challenge of walking 24 of the highest peaks of the UK is one of the ultimate goals for many people. It’s a tough one but it can be done as long as you are fit. This challenge includes Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England. We meet on the Friday evening in Penrith and travel by mini-bus to Ambleside Youth Hostel where we have dinner followed by a briefing of the weekend’s events.
Saturday. We leave early to start our walk, ascending Bow Fell, Esk Pike, Great End, Broad Crag, I’ll Crag, Scafell Pike, Great Gable, Green Gable and Base Brown.
We descend to finish in Seathwaite before going back to the youth hostel for the evening meal and relaxation.
Sunday. We travel again by mini-bus to the other side of the lakes to ascend Red Screes, Dove Crag, Hart Crag, Fairfield, Seat Sandal, Dollywaggon Pike, Nethermost Pike, Helvellyn, Lower Man, Brown Cove Crags, Whiteside, Raise, Stybarrow Dodd, Watson’s Dodd, Great Dodd.
