Walking the Lake District Fells - Langdale

The Langdale Pikes and Bowfell

By Mark Richards

Part of the Walking the Lake District Fells series, this guidebook covers a wide range of routes to 25 Lakeland summits that can be climbed from the Great Langdale valley, Ambleside and Grasmere, with highlights including Scafell Pike, Bowfell, the Langdale Pikes and Helm Crag (the Lion and the Lamb). Includes suggestions for longer ridge routes.

Seasons

Year-round walking. Winter walks, even on the lower fells, are not for the inexperienced or under-equipped.

Centres

Ambleside, Grasmere, Rydal, Elterwater, Chapel Stile, the Old and New Dungeon Ghyll hotels

Difficulty

Straightforward ascents on sometimes clear, sometimes faint paths, and occasionally pathless terrain, to be used as a basis for readers' own walks. Navigational skills are needed but no specialist equipment. Any scrambling is easy and non-scrambling alternatives are always provided.

Must See

A fresh perspective on classic summits in the Lakes including Bowfell, Crinkle Crags, Great End, Helm Crag, Loughrigg, Scafell Pike and the Langdale Pikes, and an inspiring introduction to lesser-known Lakeland fells such as Blea Rigg and Little Stand
