This famous peak is the third highest mountain in England and rises to an enormous height of 950 metres. Adrenaline Junkies, experienced climbers and people looking for something new, visit the Lake District every year to take on the ascent. This is a must-visit for anyone up for the challenge! When reaching the summit, the journey all becomes clear as you are consumed by the breath-taking views of surrounding peaks and valleys amidst the clouds.
There are three main routes all offering different things but the most popular is via the Striding Edge. This exposed knife edge ridge offers a thrill like no other as you scramble along the steep rocks. A certain level of fitness is required, due to this track being an official Grade 1 scramble. This is not for the faint-hearted!
With sheer drops and careful footwork essential, it is advised to make the climb during summer months due to better conditions. Appropriate clothing and footwear is a must and make sure to bring along plenty of food and water for the journey.
