A great weekend of guided walking up some of the Lake Districts finest, Great Gable and Scafell Pike. These Borrowdale Routes are ideal for keen walkers wanting a guided walk with a real sense of achievement afterwards.
Day 1: Scafell Pike
By far our most popular route we will take in the highest peak in England along with some of the most spectacular scenery in the Lake District.
From Seathwaite we will climb above Taylorgill Force to Styhead Tarn and Styhead Pass where we will meet the beginning of the Corridor Route which we will follow to Lingmell Col, here we have the option to take in the additional summit of Lingmell, a great viewpoint over Great Gable and the Wasdale Valley.
From Lingmell Col we will climb the short path onto the summit of Scafell Pike.
The route then takes us north along the summit Ridge, past Broad Crag and Ill Crag where again we have the option of taking in the summit of Great End, the fifth highest mountain in England.
We now descend over Esk Hause with views over The Langdale Pikes and Windermere before turning again to the north and descending alongside Grains Gill back to Seathwaite.
Day 2: Great Gable
From Seathwaite we will climb alongside Taylorgill Force and follow the beck to Sty Head Tarn and the stretcher Box at Sty Head.
From here we will climb the path directly to the summit of Great Gable, with some of the most spectacular views of the Lake District, we will make a short detour to the Westmorland Cairn with the wonderful views over the Wasdale Valley and Wast Water.
From the summit of Great Gable we will continue over the lower summit of Green Gable before descending over Base Brown and alongside the waterfalls of Sour Milk Gill back to Seathwaite.
