Activators, were off to Great Langdales, its Winter Wild Camp Time!
Bowfell is one of the Lake District’s most iconic fells with its unique and fascinating summit. From a distance, Bowfell takes on the shape of a huge craggy bulk topped off with a pointy summit.
It is the sixth highest fell in the Lakes, and was highly regarded by one of the most famous of hill walkers, Sir Alfred Wainwright, who confessed he would put it in his top half dozen mountains.
This walk takes you through a wide open glacial valley, up to a beautiful hidden glacial tarn, and gives the chance to bag several Wainwright summits giving breathtaking views of the surrounding fells and valleys. The eventual target; the exposed and airy summit of Bowfell is well worth exploring as it has many unique features, including the Bowfell Buttress and the Great Slab.
The walk starts and finishes at the National Trust Car Park next to the Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel in the Langdale Valley. We will then make our way to the camp location (TOP SECRET) where we will set up camp before exploring Bowfell as the evening draws in. Then the fun starts, a camp fire some hot food and plenty of banter to end our evening.
