Day 2 – Scafell Pike from Wasdale Head
I decided I couldn’t do a week in the Lakes without tackling the highest peak in England. I had conquered Scafell previously which happened to be in a very different climate. It was in November and as we climbed around half way it was covered in snow, at points in was knee deep. This was an incredible experience and something I would 100% do again, it was like being on a different planet, as you can see from the pictures below.
However today was a very different task, so much so that the previous outing had given me what I found to be a false knowledge of the task ahead. Having done it previously I just decided to take on the same route without any research as I knew the path.
