Scafell Pike via the Corridor route and Great End

It’s been a crazy year. Everything turned upside down.

For reasons that are probably obvious, I’ve not been going out, not been hiking, and not been taking photos.

Last week for the first time in 4 months I took a trip away. It was really needed – thanks to Chris for inviting me. We went to Yorkshire for a week, hopping over to the Lake District for a day to hike Scafell Pike.

Having not hiked for some months, we of course chose one of the harder routes in to Scafell - via the corridor route. Not wanting to do a repeat journey back, we picked the Great End as a descent. See our journey on Strava.

A small stream comes from the distance and under the camera. The hillside is green and sunny.

A few tents remained by Styhead tarn - clearly a popular spot for wild camping.

For the briefest of moments, I was the highest person in England.
