Description

Widely known as the first recorded climb in the Lake District, Broad Stand is certainly one of the most classic scrambling routes in the region.

Located on Scafell mountain, we will make a rope-assisted ascent up to the peak’s summit via Fat Mans chimney and the Broad Stand.

We will start our day by heading up through Fat Mans Chimney, which is a nice warm up for the rest of the scramble that is to come.

Once we’ve passed through here, we head up over Broad Stand, which is pretty challenging during the best of conditions and quite a bit more difficult if the route is wet (hence the rope assistance).

The views from the top are well worth the effort though and after the scramble you will feel rewarded looking down what you’ve just come up!

This is a difficult scramble, rated as a level 3, the most difficult rating for a scrambling ascent. Previous experience is very helpful, but not 100 percent necessary as long as you have the appropriate level of mental and physical fitness.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for a thrilling and fun day of scrambling up Scafell mountain via the Broad Stand!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my scrambling day for all levels at multiple locations in the UK!
