Lake District walks - Stickle Tarn

Here is the path up Stickle Ghyll. There is another path on the other side of the beck, which a few years ago used to be the main route up. Walker erosion caused the National Trust to build this excellent path as an alternative, although the original is still available. On this walk - we went on a Friday in April - we met more people than we normally meet in a week in the northern Lakes!

This is Pavey Ark, the eastern-most of the Langdale Pikes. From Stickle Tarn you can see a path ascending the scree to a "Y"; the left-hand branch is Jack's Rake, the right-hand one is Easy Gully (all things being relative, of course). For ordinary mortals, the path up is round the right and back of Pavey Ark.

Taken from the same spot as the previous picture, this shows Harrison Stickle to the left of Pavey Ark.

Here is the Tarn - and the path up Stickle Ghyll - as seen from the top of Pavey Ark. In the distance is Lake Windermere.
