/ 'Mountaineering Routes' in the Lake District
Sorry for such an open question, but I'm stuck at work with limited access to the internet (although UKC forums aren't blocked...)
I've only ever been to Lake District once before and am therefore in need of some advice. I'm looking for a long scramble/mountaineering route to do in the next couple of days. Something curved ridge-esq in character would be ideal. Any ideas?
A quick google and the only websites that I can access only give short routes. I'm after a long route on a big hill to blow away the office cobwebs!
I've been meaning to create the Long Routes Ticklist on the Logbooks here.
there isnt really anything like curved ridge. pinnacle ridge on st sunday crag maybe the closest, but shorter and less sustained.
maybe something on the eskdale flank of scafell massif?
or an enchainment like the grey crags one above buttermere? less continuous, but harder
