Scafell Pike from Great End (Best Enlarged)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The subsidiary top of Ill Crag (930m) sticks out to the left of the Scafell massif, with Scafell Pike summit (977m) seen directly behind the dark shadows of Broad Crag (934m). The famous Corridor Route from Styhead tarn can be seen crossing the slopes to the right of the ridge before climbing towards Scafell Pike summit in the right distance. Illgill head at Wast Water can just be seen peeking out in the far right distance. This ridge is the highest land in England and has a lunar landscape feel to it.

This brings back so many great memories Pete, the final scramble up the scree to the summit is quite exhilarating. Kind regards Geoff

Thanks for your kind comments Nickolay, Qianlong, Geoff, Georgi, Z and Neil. I was really pleased with this one of the Scafell Pike ridge, as it's so seldom clear of cloud!

Best regards
