Esk Pike and Bowfell from Langdale

3rd June 2018

Route. Old Dungeon Ghyll - Mickleden - Rossett Gill - Angle Tarn - Esk Hause - Esk Pike - Ore Gap - Bowfell - Three Tarns - The Band - Old Dungeon Ghyll. ( about 8.5 miles 3250ft ascent )

Sue, Mark and I headed out from Great Langdale today on another day of fine warm weather although the cloud did get up later in the afternoon.


Heading out along Mickleden, the Band straight ahead separating Crinkle Crags on the left from Bowfell.


"Never mind Pike "O" Stickle look at me I'm standing on a rock".


I'm sure it wont take long to refill them but a lot of the minor streams are bone dry.

View back down the valley from the Rossett Gill path.


Zooming in past Sue to Lingmoor Fell..

The afternoon has become a bit dark now although the Coniston fells are getting a bit of sun.

Back to the valley now and Bowfell has disappeared into the cloud.
