Scafell Pike Via Corridor Route 29/08/2020 Guided Walk

Meeting Tracey and Micheal at Seathwaite farm we completed our kit check list and headed up to Stockley bridge this was good chance to have chat about the day and our route and weather. I showed them both on the map our route and times we would expect to reach different locations on the map. The walk up to Styhead Tarn is always good steady way to gain some height and once at the Stretcher box Scafell Pike comes into view. We managed to get some good pictures from here and stopped for five minutes for a

snack and some water.

This was also good spot for me to point out other mountains which were now surrounding us, the clouds were moving in and out across the tops so we were all hoping for good views from the top of Scafell Pike. The forecast was cold Northerly wind and this is what we had for most of the day.

Once onto the Corridor route Tracey enjoyed the scrambling sections we went over and before long we were nearing the summit of roof of England. Before we got to the top we got behind some large rocks to put on some warm kit as it was going to be cold on the summit due to the Northerly wind we had. Once we had taken some pictures on the summit it was time for lunch I made the decision to come off the summit and find some shelter from the wind, once down we got out of the wind we had amazing view into the valley.

Once refuelled it was time to knock off some more Wainwrights starting with Broad Crag then onto III Crag and finishing off with Great End this made for amazing day out and with the cloud lifting the views just got better and better as the day went on.

We made our descent back down Ruddy Gill which has some amazing water falls, before we new it we were back at the farm. This had been amazing day out guiding Tracey and Micheal over the Corridor Route if this is something you are wanting to do or another route in the lakes then drop me line.
