Ascent of Skiddaw


A full day guided mountain walk as part of a small group of no more than six people plus your friendly, professional guide.

Meeting at Keswick bus station, we'll get the bus down to the west side of Skiddaw, and walk back over stunning mountains. We'll be ascending Skiddaw via a long sweeping ridge that curves round to the summit, bringing in the minor summits of Ullock Pike, Longside and Carl Side along the way. If it's a clear day we'll enjoy amazing views over Bassenthwaite Lake.

After reaching the summit of Skiddaw, our descent path takes us over further minor summits, namely Skiddaw Little Man and Latrigg. If visibility is good, we'll be treated to the most wonderful panoramic views over Derwent Water during our descent.

This is a challenging mountain walk of approximately 9 miles with 1,130 metres of ascent/descent, some of which is steep.

It is essential that you wear proper hiking boots and have outdoor clothing, including a waterproof jacket and trousers. A full list of what to wear and what to bring with you will be provided upon booking.

Advance booking and payment is required via the web link.
