Hmmmm, tough one Chris,
ScaFell Pike is certainly not suitable for camping as it is all rock and boulder, however at approx 1/2 way up from Borrowdale there is a fairly common camping spot at Esk Hause on the way up Scafell. Old Man Coniston is a great place to camp, grassy slopes and the odd stone here and there, camped up there a few times, however your other passion for 4x4 driving will have to be put on hold Chris as the vey famous Walna Scar Rd is now permanantly closed, great shame, but it leaves from the car park at the foot of the Old Man.
My suggestion would be park at Seathwaite, take the right hand path up towards Gillercomb under Raven Cragg (watch the map there are two versions of Raven Cragg in this vicinity, more later), follow the path to the summit of Green Gable and then traverse Greengable Cragg and over to Beckhead where there is a small tarn, here you vere right along Rib End untill you reach the summit of Kirk Fell, once activated return back along the path to Beckhead at which point chop right and up the small narrow path, which is a bit rocky, to the summit of Great Gable, once activated, facing SW you look towards the tarns in the bottom, Sty Head Tarn on the left and Sprinkling Tarn straight on, there are two paths, one goes straight down Raven Cragg pt 2 and is a bit harsh on the knees by this time, or the slightly more gentle path on the left, both of which converge at Sty Head. Follow the path down past Sprinkling Tarn heading towards but underneath Great End and you will meet a crossroads of paths, turn right and camp anywhere along the sheltered path side, it should take you approx 1hr from Sty Head To the camp spot at Esk Hause. Get some sleep and then in the morning rise early to attack the Scafell Massive, up over Broad cragg then the Pike, return via Sprinkling Tarn, then dive right down to Sty Head Tarn, follow the Gill all the way back to the Car Park.
Did that route and camped about 5 years ago, but did some of it 2 years ago with Mick (HJD) on our way up Scafell. Great adventure, you will love it !! Hope the above gives you some ideas. Good Luck and will be listening for you.
