When we got up it had been snowing and had covered the surrounding mountains in about  a foot of snow, after sorting out the cars we set off towards the base of scarfell pike, on the way we had to drive up over a notorious road called the Hardknott Pass, with a 1 in 3 climb it tested both the cars and out driving skills. With breathtaking views as we came down over the mountains towards scarfell we began to get a real taste of what the climb would be like, Scarfell is 981 metres high it took us about 4 and a half hours in the end. check out my Gallery Here to experience the views i had over this breathtaking weekend.
