This challenge runs over just one day, but with five peaks to tackle it’s certainly no walk in the park! Prepare for an exhausting but energising journey through the rugged and dramatic landscape of the Lake District, as you venture across 14 miles (22km) and tackle five of England’s most demanding peaks, including its highest – Scafell Pike. The group will climb to over 3,000 feet (900m), crossing crags and moorland past the Langdale Pikes towards Scafell.

THE CHALLENGE

Rise and shine for breakfast and a bright and breezy start! From the Old Dungeon Ghyll you will head north-west across the moorland towards the first peaks of the day: Rossett Pike. These are the southern fells of Wainwright country, which offer some of the finest hill-walking in England. 


After a short pit stop, the next challenge beckons, Allen Crags. From its stony summit the view stretches across the Scafells and Derwent Water. Only three peaks remain, but they are the toughest of the day so require everyone to be focused and determined.

Next it is on to the highlight of the day, the craggy peak of Scafell itself.  There is, however, the small matter of the daunting field of boulders in between, as well as a steep climb to the summit of England’s highest mountain at 978m. Ringed on all sides by crags, the

The return route will take you over the iconic peaks of Ill Crag and Great End before descending back down into the Langdale valley in time to celebrate your achievement.
