Scafell Pike, Corridor route...
During a break on the way up Great Gable at the styhead stretcher box last Saturday we got into conversations with others passing through on their way up to England's highest summit. I was happily giving advice when asked to groups and parents with young children on the best way up to the summit. It was only afterwards that I got to thinking that surely these people should have already planned a route up and be confident on it being the safest for their abilities! As this photo shows, it's a pretty inhospitable mountain if you stray off route...
All of the national 3 peaks have 'tourist routes' to the top. That doesn't make them a walk in the park though!! .
Stay safe guys
