Blencathra – Via Sharp Edge

Fancy being out of your comfort zone? What to get your adrenaline pumping? Looking to try Scrambling? Then this exciting 7-8 hour traverse of Blencathra is the mountain journey for you!

Join us on this epic short knife edge ridge scramble to the summit of one of the Lake Districts finest mountains! Standing at 869 m, it’s not the highest in the Lakes but it’s definitely a fun traverse. We will start our slightly unorthodox but fun route at Threlkeld, where we will take on the Doddick Fell Ridge and then drop down to the beautiful Scales Tarn for a welcome break. From here we then take on the epic ridge scramble up to the summit of Blencathra! There are two opinion to get to our finish point of Threlkeld, we can extend our day and take in the views of Bannerdale Crags or we can descend via Blease Fell.

During your guided day you will be given information as to the creation of these wonderful Fells, the flora and fauna and surrounding summits.

Difficulty: Medium+

Detailed information about your chosen walk will be emailed to you once your place has been confirmed and we have received your payment. Your booklet will include meeting place, suggestions for parking, start and finish times, kit list and anything else that maybe relevant for your mountain day.
