This route is recommended by Wainwright and is said to be the most scenic way to ascend Scafell Pike. It takes us up the main valley path to Stockley Bridge and on to Styhead Tarn. The onward path by the Corridor Route is amazing. On a clear day, we should enjoy some great mountain scenery, including views of Great Gable, Kirk Fell, Pillar and Red Pike (Wasdale). Aiming for Lingmell Col, we cross a number of ravines, of which Piers Gill is the most spectacular.
This is a reasonably long walk. In theory the fell can be tackled by anyone with some experience and a good level of fitness.
