The craggy profile of the Langdale Pikes perhaps make this the most recognisable mountain group in the Lake District. However, despite its rocky appearance, this dramatic scenery is not just the preserve of the climber but also provides a selection of adventurous and stunning walks.
‘Within its boundaries is one particular concentration of mountains, crowded into a small space, that, for popular appeal and scenic attractiveness ranks second to none: The Langdale Pikes.’
Starting from the New Dungeon Ghyll our route follows the tumbling course of Sour Milk Ghyll to Stickle Tarn, nestled below the plunging cliffs of Pavey Ark. From here we take an exciting journey, with stunning views, over four fabulous summits – Pavey Ark, Harrison Stickle, Pike O’ Stickle and Loft Crag.
During this walk we will enjoy magnificent mountain scenery and beautiful far reaching views. Your qualified Mountain Leader will ensure you stay on the right paths, highlight points of interest, answer your questions and ensure you have an enjoyable and memorable day.
The terrain includes mountain paths, rough stony ground and short steep climbs.
