Yesterday Tom was on a Church Youth Group trip so Ged and I decided to do a walk that We wouldn`t have been able to do with Tom. We decided on Harrison Stickle, the highest of the Langdale Pikes at 2415 ft (736m).

1

We started at the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel and went up via Mill Gill. Harrison Stickle is top, middle-left. The car parking was for four hours only so we would have to watch the clock.

2

Very uneven walking.

3

Gill scramblers.

4

Nearly there.

View back down gill.

Pavey Ark...Ged suggested we go up Jack`s Rake, a precarious path up Pavey Ark......dream on.

We took the route off to the right, a scramble over boulders.

Blue skies making the Tarn look really inviting.

Finally up high enough to get all the Tarn in a photo. Blea Rigg behind the Tarn, and tucked in behind that is Easedale Tarn where we went on Monday.

Got back to the car park with minutes to spare. So went off to Elterwater for a drink in the pub. Well deserved!
