Perhaps to be strictly correct, Rossett Pike and the fell of which it is part should be regarded as the north-east shoulder of Bowfell continuing from Hanging Knotts to Langstrath, but the sharp rise across the high straddle of Rossett Pass is pronounced that, for the present purposes, Bowfell maybe considered to terminate at the Pass.
