An awesome inversion on the 10 Peaks Challenge

We offer two different versions of the 10 Peaks Challenge: the Linear Route and the Circular Route. This page is about the Linear Route. Click here for the alternative Circular Route.

The 10 Peaks Challenge (Linear Route) 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

Lakeland Ascents will provide professional mountain guides to look after you and your group as you take on this amazing Lake District challenge. The price is just £300 per guide – this is the total amount to be shared by your whole group. Each guide can take up to 7 people.

Due to the linear nature of this route (i.e. the day starts and ends in different places) you cannot realistically leave your own car at the start and return to it later, so a dedicated driver who doesn’t go on the hill or private transport is essential. To save money and simply these logistics, take a look at the 10 Peaks Challenge (Circular Route).
