Climbing Sca Fell via Lord

Q. Has anyone information about the Lord's Rake route to Sca Fell? I believe that it is unsafe even for experienced walkers especially if in a group because of loose rock. I have heard that the Foxes Tarn route also has problems. We plan to climb Sca Fell in May.

Regards

Peter Wood, Lymm


A. You are right to be concerned. Lord's Rake is a narrow, steep corridor of rock situated on the West Wall Traverse near Mickledore (the col between Sca Fell and Scafell Pike) up on to Sca Fell itself. In 2004 there was a significant rock fall and the area remains highly unstable. It should be avoided by everyone, regardless of experience and group size.

For more information about alternative walking routes up Sca Fell see Walks up Sca Fell.
