There are four main routes to the summit, and at Adventure trails we can offer you a guided walk on any of the following routes of your choice:
From Wasdale Head in the west is the most popular and offers the shortest ascent. However depending on where you are staying, this can involve a long drive over to West Cumbria. The upside though is you get to see the beautiful Wasdale Valley, regularly voted the most scenic view in Britain!
From Seathwaite to the north offers a longer but more varied ascent. If you’re staying in the north of the Lake District around Keswick, Seathwaite offers a good start point. This route takes in the dramatic Corridor Route and involves a few tricky rock steps to negotiate.
From Langdale to the east is a longer route of 11 miles, however this is mostly because of a long flat section to the head of Langdale Valley. This route may suit those staying in the Ambleside/ Windermere area.
From Eskdale to the south is probably least used and like the Langdale route is a bit longer. With it being less popular you are really rewarded with a feeling of true wilderness.
