10 Peaks Challenge

DSC 2228 304x201 10 Peaks Challenge

An awesome inversion on the 10 Peaks Challenge

With the National 3 Peak Challenge becoming more and more popular, we are often contacted about alternative challenges that can equal, if not surpass the 3 Peaks. The Lake District 10 Peaks Challenge does just this – arguably this challenge is also more challenging that the National 3 Peaks, in that there are another 7 mountains to climb!

The 10 Peaks Challenge is a shortened version of the super-hard Lake District 24 Peaks Challenge – the 10 Peaks Challenge being day 1 of the tougher event.

Starting in Buttermere and ending in Great Langdale, the 10 Peaks Challenge takes in the summits below, in one 17 mile (27.5km) push with 2519m (8264ft) of ascent.

  • Leg 1: Gatesgarth Farm – Red Pike 4.5km
  • Leg 2: Red Pike – High Stile 1.2km
  • Leg 3: High Stile – High Crag 1.5km
  • Leg 4: High Crag – Green Gable 6km
  • Leg 5: Green Gable – Great Gable 0.8km
  • Leg 6: Great Gable – Lingmell 4.2km
  • Leg 7: Lingmell – Scafell Pike 1.5km
  • Leg 8: Scafell Pike – Great End 1.8km
  • Leg 9: Great End – Esk Pike 1.6km
  • Leg 10: Esk Pike – Bow Fell 1.6km
