Scafell Overnighter July 2013

 Upper Eskdale with the River Esk below and the shapely peak of Bow Fell ahead.
Scafell Overnight Expedition 2-4 July 2013

This is a brief outline of the expedition which I'll fill in with more detail soon.

Pete and Lyn plan a three day outing based in Eskdale, staying either at the Woolpack NY190010 or at the nearby Eskdale YHA; if you fancy camping then the nearest camping is at Hollins Farm at Boot. We plan to arrive in Eskdale early on Tuesday 2nd and spend the day on the local fells. On Wednesday we'll take on the challenge of Scafell 964m/3162ft by way of Upper Eskdale, returning by a different route over Slight Side.  During the evenings we'll congregate at the Woolpack and have dinner and drinks. On Thursday we'll again spend the day walking on the Eskdale fells before returning home that evening. Of course you can join us for all or part of the expedition, it's up to you.
