Having ascended Scafell Pike with members of my family three of us deviated on the descent to include Lingmell. We went to both tops. The finger of rock on the north top does look as though it might be higher than the south top. We rejoined the standard route back to the National Trust car park just beyond the head of Wast Water.pwbellarby12/08/2017

Walk with Will from Wasdale Head up Lingmell Beck and the Corridor route onto Scafell Pike. Descended onto Lingmell and found a nice quiet footpath down the ridge and back to the carPhilip A17/07/2017
And so the day finally dawned....the planned end of our great Wainwrights adventure. But aaagh! the weather forecast had deteriorated overnight so that now fog and rain were forecast from early afternoon. Got ourselves down to Wasdale Head pronto and left in bright sunshine in shorts and t shirts. Romped up Lingmell, still sunny at the top but wind made it cool. Great views all round but no time to hang around. Great End looked quite a long way away and the clouds were gathering to the west.....AlanDStewart01/07/2017
Minor detour from Corridor Route to Scafell Pike. Certainly a much quieter place than the biggy itself and a far better view of the magnificent Great Gable. Sure the fingers of rocks to the NW of the cairn are higher? Maybe just another optical illusion.Hillsidenick09/05/2017

Set off at 9am, Walked up from Wasdale Head, to Scafell Pike, only 3 others on top this time in the morning, snow still all over the place but perfect warm and sunny, great views over the snow capped Lakeland Peaks, no haze so views stretched to Snowdonia, Isle of Man, Northern Ireland, Southern Uplands all the way over to what looked like The Cheviot, North Pennines, Dales and Forest of Bowland. Afterwards went on to Lingmell, and down steep Lingmell ridge back down to Wasdale Head, then drove to and bagged Seatallan, 9.3 miles altogether, now only have to bag Slieve Donard then all the UK country summits are done, role on June!DanTrig25/03/2017
Sunny, but cold and windy.Winterfloodian26/01/2017
set off at 5:30. Parked at Wasdale Head Green before making our way past Olafs church. went underneath Great Gable before turning right across the river towards Piers Gill. Followed Piers Gill on the left side, very steep. few scrambles but final push to summit. summit has impressive cairn which now looks slight different after me being there. great 360 degree views and a crystal clear cold but crisp day.Scotty 2 Hotty02/01/2017
