Scafell Pike

Scafell Pike guided walk
Friday 15th May 2015

Route: Seathwaite, Grains Gill, Esk Hause, Broad Crag, Scafell Pike, Corridor Route, Styhead Tarn.

The first time I've had a view from the summit since 1998! We also met another group of 10 "week equipped" walkers (well clothed, I should say) who didn't have a map between them and so I guided them down to the Corridor Route. This sort of thing happens regularly in the mountains.

A great day with a great group of people, as always
