Blencathra Via Sharp Edge

Wainwrights: Blencathra
Hewitts: Blencathra

Date walked: 19/06/2022

On the August bank holiday weekend last year, I hiked up Blencathra - an amazing hike that I highly recommend. I know some people say the Lake District is too busy and crowded in the summer (and during our trip, we did experience some of that) but we only came across a small number of people on this hike - and it was a national holiday too. I've put together a video of our hike, up via Sharp Edge and back down via Scales Fell. If you choose to watch it, I hope you enjoy it, or it maybe helps with your own trip planning? Would love to know if you've hiked it and what your thoughts were?
