Thanks to James for adding this peak.

Bowfell lies at the head of Great Langdale. There are a number of routes, from just walk ups, to rock climbs. Many of the routes would require ice axe and crampons in winter conditions. The peak can be included in a walk via Crinkle Crags to the south, or via Esk Pike to the north.
