Penelope and I hiked the Corridor Route from the Seathwaite farm on January 24th, 2010. It was a grey, cloudy and snowy day with a very cold summit. The route finding was rather interesting for us, we had no guidebook, map or compass, just verbal instructions from our British friends (we were visiting from California). This is a wonderful hike in winter conditions, we loved it.
My first time up Scafell Pike - the start of a mountain obesssion...!
Great fun in the mist, followed the corrdior route quite a way before scrambling up to the high ridges (was just a sheep on this route)
My fav way up to SP. Offers an interesting and varied route.
