Day 1 - Group gets picked up from accommodation/pre-arranged pick up point at 9.00 and taken to Seathwaite. The group will ascend and descend Scafell Pike by a combination of Grains Gill and Broad Crag and Styhead Gill and the Corridor Route depending on conditions and abilities. This is an approximately 15km round trip with 1000m of ascent. It is approximated that the group will be on the hill for up to 8 hours. These are popular routes and collect litter from those with less eco-awareness. Therefore there will be opportunity to collect and remove litter from the trails as you go. At the end of the day the group will be returned to their accommodation/drop off point to have a relaxing evening in their accommodation and to prepare for;
Day 2 - Group gets picked up from accommodation/pre-arranged pick up point at 9.00 and taken to Wasdale. The group will ascend via Mickledore and descend the most popular route via Hollow Stone. This is an approximate 9km round trip with 900m of ascent. It is approximated that the group will be on the hill for 6 hours. There will be plenty more opportunity to collect and remove litter from the trails. This challenge will give the group many views of Englands highest peak and give the opportunity to “give something back by taking something away”. Exact routes will be decided on the day and will depend on weather conditions and peoples fitness etc.
Challenges (as well as the climb itself) includes collecting a certain weight, number of bags of litter or finding and bringing back the most interesting piece of litter - an octopus was found at the summit in 2013.
