Ascent of Scafell Pike on 2009-09-19
|Date:||Saturday, September 19, 2009|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||978 m / 3209 ft|
Ascent Trip ReportFollowed standard Esk Hause route from Seathwaite. After stone bridge, bear left and follow trail to head of valley. Bear left again at T-junction, and then right at Y-junction. Bear right at Esk Hause (2450ish) and follow the sometimes rough, but exceedingly well-cairned over a couple of false summits to the summit.
I highly recommend starting early, as when I arrived at 7:00am on a Saturday, there were maybe a dozen cars parked, but there must have been 150+ when I left at 11:30am.
RT was 8.75 miles. Gain was 3000ish. Time up was 2h20m, down 1h50m at a fairly plodding pace.
