Great Langdale - the mighty Bow Fell ranks high in many fell-walkers' esteem and is rooted in Great Langdale, from where its peaked summit has all the air of an emperor's throne, set high above a defending fringe of impressive buttresses and distanced by the long tongue of The Band. When combined with the highly individual peaks of Crinkle Crags, this offers a classic Lakeland ridge walk which has all of the ingredients required for a thoroughly rewarding day on the fells. The suggested 9 mile [BLACK] anti-clockwise circuit of Oxendale (with 3280ft of ascent), visits the summits of Bowfell, Crinkle Crags & Great Knott. Keen walkers may choose to mop up Pike of Blisco as an added bonus.
