Richard Fulcher hiked on May 3rd, 2017 [from/via/route] Wasdale Head [with] Jen [weather] Sunny, clear blue sky, very windy with gale force gusts - The path up from Wasdale Head was well marked & firm under foot. I went up Lingmell whilst Jen waited in the col shielding herself from the wind. We both then slowly hiked up to the top of Scafell Pike, getting blown off course every few steps by a strong gust of wind. Trying getting up and down. About 10 to 20 people at the top. We abandoned the idea of walking to Great End and back by Sty Head and just returned via the main path to the Wasdale Head Inn.
