The Lake District contains some of the most beautiful scenery in England. It has hundreds of fells which create a vast terrain of rugged mountains. There are 4 fells (according to Wainwright!) which exceed the 3000ft mark. These can be climbed in a 3 day trip, meaning you have then climbed the 4 highest peaks in England.
The mountains in question, in order of height, are:
- Scafell Pike, 3210ft
- Sca Fell, 3164ft
- Helvellyn, 3118ft
- Skiddaw, 3054ft
The English peaks offer some of the finest mountain scenery in the UK and this is a great way to enjoy them.
Duration: long weekend
- 3 days guiding by qualified mountain leaders.
- Twin room hotel accommodation. Single rooms available at a supplement.
- Many years experience in The Lake District
- Good level of fitness required
- Open dates or bespoke courses for individuals to larger groups - just ask.
The course is lead by a qualified leader and the precise itinerary will be decided locally with the group depending upon weather, conditions and group fitness.
We meet on a Thursday evening and then complete the peaks from Friday to Sunday. Each day will consist of between 6-8hrs on the hills.

|Friday||Ascent of Helvellyn traversing the mountain from south to north.|
|Saturday||Traverse of Scafell Pike and Scafell finishing in Wasdale.|

Please note: This itinerary is a guide only. It can be subject to change dependent upon viability, course members' fitness, weather conditions or for any other reason
To complete this trip you need to have a good level of fitness. No previous mountaineering experience is required, however the fitter you are the more you will enjoy your day.
We recommend that you follow a fitness plan in preparation for your challenge, an example of one will be sent to you when you have confirmed your booking.
Although the fitness plan we will send to you has been devised by a fitness professional, this is only provided as a guide and you should seek professional advice before starting your own fitness regime.
A detailed kit list will be issued once we confirm your booking.
