Scafell Pike is the tallest mountain in England and a fantastic accomplishment. All that said, it isnt just about standing on top of England, the journey to the top is where you will see the wonderful sights. The huge cliffs and deep gullys send the imagination wild and bring a real sense of adventure. The Corridor Route is by far the most exciting and rewarding route to the summit of Scafell Pike and once you reach the summit you will feel accomplished. Our mission at Summit and Beyond is to reconnect people with nature, inspire confidence, build resilience and teach the skills needed to remain safe in the mountains.
