10 Peaks The Lakes
73km/ 5600m ascent/ 24 hours
The route will take you over dramatic rocky crags, across open moorland and through low lying bogs following a clockwise loop incorporating all ten of the Lake District’s highest peaks.
There are two suggested routes. The standard routes stays on the high ground, taking the Corridor Route between Scafell Pike and Great Gable (climbing Great Gable before Pillar), whilst the alternative route descends into Wasdale after completing Scafell and heads up to Pillar by Wind Gap (bagging Pillar before Great Gable) – this route means that you will have to climb Great Gable after the Beck Head check point. The alternative route is about 1km shorter but adds 50m altitude gain and a beast of a scramble up through Wind Gap.
Participants will need to navigate their own way from peak to peak on foot and feel confident doing so night or day. Below you can view the suggested routes however this is only a suggestion and you will need to make the best decisions based on your own level of experience.
