What’s next after South Leeds Hikers scale Scafell Pike?

Now that the South Leeds Hiking Group (SLHG) have conquered the tallest mountain in England they need your help to decide what to do next, what should their next goal be? (And don’t make it too easy for them.)

On Saturday (6 July 2019) SLHG scaled Scafell Pike in the Lake District, which was packed with at least 500 other walkers and on one of the hottest days of the year. A couple of the members ticked off their final mountain in the three peaks challenge on the UK mainland (the highest peaks in Scotland, Wales and England: Ben Nevis, Snowdon and Scafell Pike) and supported other members as they climbed.

The group is now looking to develop a more advanced programme to compliment the easier walks that they will still be organising. This will allow everyone of all abilities to enjoy a hike at their standard. To do this they need engagement from local people and those looking to join them in the future. If they can make it happen they will.

There has been talk of camping trips, so if this is something you would be interested in getting involved with, or would like more information about the walks offered, please contact the group directly on Facebook and let them know your ideas.
