Full Day: Allow 6-8 hours
Terrain: Good bridleways & paths, pathless ascent of Esk Pike, boulder strewn in places, good paths on return.
Summary: This route offers an introduction to the sport of scrambling (with the option to miss bits out at any time). From Langdale valley we ascend easily to Angle tarn, beyond this the scrambling begins. Short, easy rock steps allow confidence to build and before long we’re on the summit of Esk Pike. From here we stroll over to Bowfell before beginning our descent via The Band. We can finish with a visit to the ODG (Old Dungeon Ghyll) pub for refreshments under the mountains. What a perfect end to a great mountain day.
