5 Peaks Challenge

Join us to celebrate our 5th birthday year by taking part in the 5 Peaks Challenge.

Prepare for an epic challenge through the rugged and dramatic landscape of the Lake District, as you tackle five of England’s most demanding peaks.

Date: 17-18 May 2019

Location: Lake District

Registration: £50

Minimum Fundraising target: £275

This is a challenge which takes place during Silver Week in May, in the heart of England.  Included in the registration is the hostel accommodation, breakfast and plenty of lunch and snacks whilst on the trek, you will also have the best mountain leaders to take you safely across the peaks.

Together you will climb to over 3,000 feet, crossing crags and moorland and take on 5 of the Lake District’s toughest peaks:

Peak 1 – Crinkle Crags

Peak 2 – Bowfell

Peak 3 – Esk Pike

Peak 4 – Great End

Peak 5 – Scafell Pike

 

This challenge runs over just one day, but with five peaks to tackle it’s certainly no walk in the park! Prepare for an exhausting but energising journey through the rugged and dramatic landscape of the Lake District, as you venture across 14 miles and tackle five of England’s most demanding peaks, including its highest – Scafell Pike. The group will climb to over 3,000 feet, crossing crags and moorland past the Langdale Pikes towards Scafell.

YOUR CHALLENGE DAY BY DAY
DAY 1, FRI 17 MAY 2019
ARRIVAL AND PREPARATION
The adventure begins in the late afternoon at our hostel, in the heart of the Lake District. You will need to arrive by 8pm to meet your leaders and for the full safety briefing.

Please note that dinner on this first night is not included, but is available at the hostel.

DAY 2, SAT 18 MAY 2019
THE CHALLENGE
Rise and shine for breakfast and a bright and breezy start! From the Old Dungeon Ghyll we head north-west across the moorland towards the first peaks of the day: Allen Crags. These are the southern fells of Wainwright country, which offer some of the finest hill-walking in England. 

After a short pit stop, the next challenge beckons, Great End. From its stony summit the view stretches across the Scafells and Derwent Water. Only two peaks remain, but they are the toughest of the day so require everyone to be focussed and determined.

Next it is on to the highlight of the day, the craggy peak of Scafell itself. There is, however, the small matter of the daunting field of boulders in between, as well as a steep climb to the summit of England’s highest mountain at 978m. Ringed on all sides by crags, the expansive views take in Great End and Helvellyn to the north, Crinkle Crags and Windermere to the south-east and, on a clear day, the Isle of Man and the Scottish hills to the west.

Our return route takes us over the iconic peaks of Esk Pike and Bowfell before descending back down into the Langdale valley in time to celebrate our achievement.
