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:
- one in The Eastern Fells Area area (Helvellyn)
- one in The Northern Fells area (Skiddaw) and
- four in The Southern Fells area (Scafell Pike, Sca Fell, Broad Crag & Ill Crag)
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 Sca Fell use walk
To walk Helvellyn use walk
To walk Skiddaw use walk
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:
If you are new to the concept of 'Peak Bagging' - any of these 6 would be a really good place to start your collection.
