This was a pretty easy walk to the summit of Bowfell, taking the simple route up 'The Band' and then up the summit path to the top. We intended to walk along the climbers traverse and do a bit of scrambling but unfortunately missed the path and therefore the best views of Bowfell. Not to worry, one for another day.
It was a wonderful walk with fantastic blue skies and sunshine. That was, right until we reached the summit when the mist rolled in and the views we had been looking forward to were covered in a blanket of pea soup. A quick sit on the top and obligatory photo and we retreated down a little for lunch.
Then returned down the long slope to the bottom. After a year of very little mountain walking you forget how hard coming down hill can be on the poor knees, but thinking of the pub at the end of the track kept us going.
