Starting from the NT car park at Wasdale is the shortest route up Scafell Pike, but it's still a round trip of 9km with over 900m of ascent and it took us 6 hours including stops. It's a tough hard slog up and down though...More

While scaffell may be the tallest noun Ian around, it actually takes a surprisingly small amount of time to climb. The ascent only takes about 1-2 hours depending on how fit you are, however it is very steep and the terrain is very rocky at...More

We visited the Lake District with the intention of hiking Scafell Pike and it was certainly worth the trip. We started at Wasdale and followed the path up from the car park. At around the halfway point, we turned right at the fork in the...More

Beautiful views and fresh mountain streams, make this long stair climb more than worth it. There are many routes you can take, but the main 2 are left or right at the fork in the stairs about 1/2 the way up. Left is longer but...More

We are once a year mountain walkers doing the three peaks in three years with our 9yr old twins. First off just to get straight to the point having completed Snowdon via the Pyg track ScaFell, whilst not technically as challenging it was physically harder....More

Went up with a guide via the Wasdale route. We thought the climb was quite difficult (steep steps up lots of rocks) but stopping every so often gave us time to gather our breaths. Once you’re at the top the views are amazing.

Tackled this from Wasdale on a very warm day. The ascent was steady enough but the flies nearer the top were annoying! I have a dodgy knee which was fine until the descent, the stone path is unforgiving. Dog handled the stones well enough but...More

I climbed this mountain with my family when I was young, I have vivid memories of it but it was a really good challenge. It took us a long time to get up and back down but it was worth the struggle. I didn't know...More

Didn’t see any organised walks. For the easiest route go from Wasdale. We passed plenty of other people whilst walking, and the path is clearly marked.

I personally think -Scafell Pike from Wasdale as it is aprox 6.5 miles (total)-it is easiest way and if you are physcially fit you can do it on within less hours then other route
