Often mistaken for its slightly taller neighbour – and mistakenly ignored by many just shooting for the high point – Scafell is every bit as impressive (many say more so) as Scafell Pike. Home to notorious, unstable ascents such as Lord’s Rake and the challenging scramble of Broad Stand, the climbing crags on the massive East Buttress lend the mountain the chaotic, jumbled appearance of a half-collapsed building.
Best route: the Corridor Route, from Seathwaite (NY234112), via Broad Crag and Symonds Knott.
