Walk all the 3000ft Mountains in England

Walk all the mountains in England over 3000ft above sea level

The English 3000ft'ers comprise 6 Mountains that rise above 915m (3000ft) with at least 30m (100ft) of reascent on all sides.

The highest point is Scafell Pike and all are within the Lake District National Park in Cumbria:

Most fell walkers walk the English 3000ft'ers in 4 walks - though it is possible to complete the task in just three walks if you are really fit - see walks c110 and c271 below.

The 4 walks you should walk are:


To walk Scafell Pike, Broad Crag and Ill Crag use walk

Walk c172 Scafell Pike via The Corridor Route from Wasdale Head, Wast Water

To walk Sca Fell use walk

Walk c109 Slight Side and Sca Fell from Wha House Farm, Eskdale

To walk Helvellyn use walk

Walk c124 Helvellyn Ridge from Thirlmere

To walk Skiddaw use walk

Walk c248 Skiddaw from High Side

Bagging Scafell Pike, Broad Crag, Ill Crag and Sca Fell in the same walk is very strenuous due to the huge descent and reascent required to cross the col at Mickledore which lies directly between the two mountains.

However, it is possible using walks:

Walk c110 The Eskdale Skyline from Wha House Farm, Eskdale

or

Walk c271 The Scafell Massif from Wasdale Head, Wast Water

Peak Bagging

If you are new to the concept of 'Peak Bagging' - any of these 6 would be a really good place to start your collection.
