From Harrison Stickle, we dropped down and then began the climb up to Pike O' Stickle.
Looking back to Harrison Stickle.
The unmistakable shape of Skiddaw in the distance.
Our third, and final, summit of the day at 709m, with the inevitable cairn.
After a short pause on the summit, we began the descent, topping Loft Crag which is, surprisingly, the second sleeping giant, its position blocking the view of Pike O' Stickle from the valley floor.
We paused to admire the beautiful markings on the fleece of this Herdwick, before skirting the top of Raven Crag...
and crossing Dungeon Ghyll to return to the car park.
The weather was perfect (sunny, but cool) and the views stunning. I would recommend this walk to anyone who feels able.
It was a day to treasure in the memory banks.
