"The Original"

Bowfell , The Lake District

Sunrise Summer Solstice 2019

Date:  Thursday 20th June 2019 11.30pm

Join us on "the original" organised event to watch the sunrise on the longest day from the summit of Bowfell in The Lake District, one of Lakeland's more iconic peaks
We will be leaving the Old Dungeon Ghyll Car Park  (Please pay for parking) at about midnight  or soon after on Thursday 20th June and ascend The Band  to reach the summit at approx. 4am (Sunrise is at 4.37am). The ascent isn't so bad as the banter and stories we have from the area will keep you entertained.
We can make ourselves comfy and watch the sunrise over the Pennines, following the sunlight as it creeps up The Langdale valley.
We will descend either the same way, or if you are are feeling fit, then  possibly via Rossett Gyhll, or a traverse of Rossett Pike, descending via Langdale Combe and Mickleden, back at approx. 7am.

If you are thinking of your first night walk or want to witness this event then why not do it in the safe hands of our experienced Mountain Leaders. We will supply Cake on the summit (might even be a drop of Scotch going round).
There will be plenty of guides coming along, so there will be the opportunity to travel in smaller groups of equal speeds...This will allow all of us to summit comfortably.
Looking forward to see you there...
