What's the collected wisdom on the best descent off Scafell? From the summit a rocky path leads down West, then turns into a grassy trod that forks off right/NW. From here I've looked at 3 lines:
1. The red line comes down a lovely wide scree slope to a wall corner, but there isn't a stile. So - cross the wall and head NW down through the fields towards the FB and car park? or perhaps follow the wall N on its right, over Lingmell Gill and then W along the stony Scafell Pike footpath?
2. The blue line takes a steeper scree line that zig-zags a bit. Not quite sure where it comes out?
3. The green line follows a more gentle grassy descent (which isn't actually all that pleasant) and eventually meets a good track that leads to the car park.
I'd like to use one of the scree options, as these seem easier on the legs, just not sure about the easiest way from the stone wall down to the car park?
