Scafell is the second highest mountain in England. Although not quite as high as its neighbour, Scafell Pike, it is the more difficult fell to climb. The scenery is rocky and impressive. Alfred Wainwright noted that “Many folk today, even with the added knowledge that the main Pike is not only higher but actually the highest land in the country, share the old opinion that Scafell is the superior mountain of the group”.
