The Corridor Route

About the Route

With numerous possibilities starting from Seathwaite, our proposed route goes via Styhead Tarn.

A gentle introduction brings us to the picturesque Stockley Bridge, and from here we follow Styhead Gill all the way to the tarn of the same name.  This is a natural stopping off point, to enjoy the views before we press on to join the Corridor route which crosses the tops of Greta & Piers Gills before levelling at Lingmell Col.

The final ascent onto the summit plateau is in common with the route from Wasdale.

360 degree views from the summit of Scafell Pike on a clear day are dramatic and varied, with sea, mountain, lake and valley.

To return we may opt for a similar route, or walk via Esk Hause.  We can then either walk passed the beautiful Sprinkling Tarn or head down the pretty Ruddy Gill and Grains Gill back to Stockley Bridge.

Quick Facts

Starting point is Seathwaite Farm, in the Southern reaches of Borrowdale valley

How far is it?  Around 11 miles / 17km

How long will it take?   Between 6 – 8 hours

How much ascent?   Around 1000 metres

Level of difficulty: Medium – High

What’s the terrain like?  Many of the paths are well maintained, particularly so in the lower reaches of the route. Beyond Styhead Tarn and near the summit, paths are rough and navigation is difficult when misty.

Is it for me?

  • You are wanting a more challenging mountain walk covering a lot of terrain in gorgeous surroundings. You are fit and occasionally walk in the mountains and you are happy to cover longer distances by foot. It’s more of a mountain day out than a summit tick. You will be flexible on route choice once we’re out as weather / fitness may dictate the summits we visit.
  • Perfect for fitter walkers looking for a big day out.
  • Not a 3 peaks route.
  • You’re staying in or near to Keswick.
