Best route for me was completed by accident. After a glorious summer morning ascending Bowfell from Great Langdale, I looked across towards the summit of Scafell Pike and thought 'oh, go on then!'. Took in Esk Pike first then the route via Esk Hause. What a day! Views were great throughout and the whole experience made better due to the fact that it was totally unplanned. Descended via Angle Tarn - whole route took approx 10 hours, but that was with a 5 year old and 8 year old in tow. In short, Scafell Pike from Langdale - unmissable!
