Miles: 6.1 Peaks: 1 Duration: 6 Hours
This is the HARD option and a good level of hill fitness is required.
The harder walk of the two options and one of the least used paths up Scafell Pike. After a relatively flat start to this walk in order to make progress to the head of the valley the path soon starts gaining height and doesn’t really flatten much until the summit! There is a fun short scramble about half way, and then our expert guides will guide you across more ‘off piste’ scrambling terrain just before the summit. The descent will be via the route used on the moderate walk (via Hollow Stones and Brown Tongue).
By participating in this event it is expected that you should do some additional fundraising for St Mary's Hospice. Upon booking you will receive a download link, in which there is a pack which will give tips on how to fundraise. You can check out the fab work that the charity does by visiting their website: http://www.stmaryshospice.org.uk/
