SOTA activation of England’s highest summit: Scafell Pike

Approaching Scafell Pike

Approaching Scafell Pike

While on holiday in the Lake District with the YL in July, I activated ten SOTA summits. The focus of these walks was not SOTA, but instead all day walking, so brevity and lightweight gear was the order of the day – 2m FM was the natural choice.

We chose to do Scafell Pike (G/LD-001 – 978m ASL – 10 points) on the best day of WX and we were not disappointed, it was sunny and we even had a cloud free summit! Scafell Pike is England’s highest mountain, so we were really lucky with the weather, hence the video of the activation:
