A walk around the head of Great Langdale
« on: 22:35:39, 01/02/19 »

Hi guys, I finally got around to putting together a blog post from this excellent walk in November, which included Rossett Pike, Allen Crags, Great End, Esk Pike and Bowfell. The two photos below, are probably the best of the bunch. But if you fancy a quick read of my blog, then feel free to click on the link below.

Lovely TR and pics John, looks like you had a great time.
Pleased that you didn't suffer from your fall, it is so easy to put a foot wrong or just be caught by the wind at the wrong time.


Are you sure that is a jet, I thought my screen just needed cleaning.
Over hill, over dale. Thorough brush, thorough brier....
I do wander every where

 ;D ;D


The jet was very fast, and I was very slow, but trust me Mark, its not dust on your screen  ;D


And thanks for the kind comments, much appreciated  O0

Nice one John. I’m up in Langdale at Easter and am thinking of something similar. Aiming to add Crinkle Crags on there’ll be so much more daylight then.

Thanks Tim, yeah adding Crinkle Crags makes in quite a day but should be a belter at Easter time with longer days  O0

I did thanks Karl, the sunlight played a good part in the afternoon, especially around Esk Pike and Bowfell  8)

Thank you Lee, yes the views I got were just stunning all day, and when the sun came out early afternoon, just made it perfect  :)

Cracking write up of a favourite area - some great photos there, I particularly like the rays of sun on the Langdales.  I know exactly what you mean about a feeling of wellbeing after a day like that , it's exactly how I feel on a good day out.

Yes that pleasantly tired and content feeling at the end of the day.

Thanks Paul, yes it's one of the best feelings in the world walking off a good mountain day, even after getting a sore eye and cheek, from a loose rucksack strap  ;D

Great trip report and photos, really enjoyed that - gave a really vivid sense of the day's walk.  O0  Especially liked the picture looking back down to Mickleden and the one of the sunlight on the eastern crags of Scafell Pike, superb!


I'm always being caught out by the rucksack strap thing - doesn't half sting when it gets you!  ;D

Nice pics jontea, I will catch up with your blog later from home  O0

Edited to add

Great write up of an epic day out, a fab walk is that. It is nice when you are really enjoying life on a walk and health problems can be forgotten for a while. Fantastic photos too  O0

Interesting figures from the fitbit  :)

Thanks very much adalard, yes the light was just right for the eastern side of Scafell Pike, so I think I got lucky with the shot.
And yes by eck those straps do hurt when they catch you just right  >:(

Yes thanks April, it was an epic day. And as you say, putting health issues to one side is always nice, and being able to get on with enjoying life again. It is exactly one year today I was having major surgery  :o


The steps on the Fitbit is still my record  ;)

Great TR jontea, well written & informative   O0


A great route with fabulous photos of a really memorable trip. I couldn't think of a more perfect way to spend a day.
