Walk up Scafell Pike via the Corridor Route from Wasdale Head Details

The Corridor Route is a much more interesting route than the standard Scafell Pike from Wasdale, but with a couple of nice scrambly sections! While it’s usually walked via Styhead Tarn, from Borrowdale, this provides an equally dramatic setting as you pass under the slopes of Great Gable.

NOTE – This route only measures the route ONE WAY! You’ll need to double the distance if returning the same way (obviously!)
