Bowfell. The Lake District


At a height of 902m Bowfell is the 6th highest mountain in England. From a distance Bowfell has a distinctive pyramid like shape with deep gulleys on one side.

I usually start my climb from the Langdale side and walk up the band and the turn right at the three tarns before making the scramble up to the top. En route you go past a huge slab of rock named “great slab”. I haven’t got photographs of this but I always stop and stare at it for a little while on the way up.
