Another Mountain

Scafell Pike is the highest mountain in England. It’s only slightly taller than the surrounding peaks, but popular with walkers due to being the tallest.
You can hike to the top, no climbing gear is needed beyond good boots, though walking poles are a big help.

The approach to the top is across a loose bolder / scree field, you think you’re getting close to the summit, then the clouds clear momentarily (or someone with a map points out) you’re still a good half hour (across more loose scree) from the top. The point you’re been heading to is just a lower summit and conflux of several routes.

Having walked Scafell Pike twice now, I think I can safely say I don’t want to do it again. It’s no where near as much fun as Snowden or Ben Nevis.

Though the views are stunning when the clouds clear…
Perhaps I’ll climb it once more…
