TO THE ROOF OF ENGLAND - Scafell Pike from Borrowdale. ( May 1994; RT. 65m )
The historic first filmed walk to the summit of any Lakeland fell and Wainwright's nominated "Best Fellwalk." This classic route of sustained variety, interest and unsurpassed vistas begins on the cobblestones at Seathwaite, heading south to Stockley Bridge thence intimately alongside the giant atmospheric water feature that is Grains Gill up to below Great End's awesome nothern crags ...and on southeast up to Esk Hause, from where a rising traverse through Calf Cove and a turn south past Long Pike, Ill Crag and cautiously through the Broad Crag boulder field ...leads on to Scafell Pike's substantial summit platform with its adjacent triangulation pillar at 977m or 3210ft - the highest ground in England.
Almost luminous evening sunlight is cast upon the adjacent Bowfell and the distant Helvellyn range as we descend.
Taken in rare clear summer conditions affording unrivalled views to all the major Cumbrian fells as well as way down to Wastwater - from the highest mountain to the deepest lake.
