Some nice shots in your vid, AJ. One observation: it might help old gits like me if your titles stay on screen for a bit longer, as I didn't have time to read them properly! I walked Bow Fell a couple of times last summer during my first visit to the Lakes, once by going up The Band, but not via the Great Slab. Next time, may be.
I left the titles on quick display so that you have to go back and watch it again YOu MUST go by the traverse, ive done both ways and like Wainwright says, it is by far the best way, you dodge all that orrid scree from the 3 tarns. The spring water is like nectar too Go - you wont be disappointed I promise.
