Book our guided service for Scafell Pike.


Here at LDM, we know the mountain intimately and we have guided hundreds of walkers safely to the summit of England’s highest mountain.

Our guides are knowledgeable, safe and experienced on the mountain and know the terrain well so you're in good hands for your trip.


We have three starting locations for this walk.


1: Wasdale. National Trust lakeside car park.

This is the shortest route up to the summit. A steep climb to Hollowstones and Lingmell Col offers a scenic ascent.

Up to 6 hours walking.


2: Seathwaite, Borrowdale.

This is a longer climb, taking in Esk Hause and climbing over Ill Crag & Broad Crag before summiting Scafell Pike, returning via the Corridor route.

Up to 7 hours walking.


3: Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel, Langdale.

The longest ascent of the mountain, through the valley of Mickleden and up Rosset Gill, this will get you up to to Esk Hause and over the large plateau to Scafell Pike.

Up to 8 hours walking.
