|There was very few cars in the New Dungeon Ghyll car park, (it is midweek I suppose). I walked beside Stickle Ghyll, pausing here on the bridge to admire the view up towards Stickle Tarn|
|Once above the plantation the path in the picture above leaves the main track. There's no cairn, nor should there be! I will remove a cairn if one appears!!|
This is the connoisseur's route to Stickle Tarn.
|Once at Stickle Tarn, Pavey Ark fills the scene to the North, Sergeant Man peeping over it's East ridge.|
|The cold night had caught Stickle Tarn, there was a slight skim of ice as I walked round to reach the foot of Pavey Ark|
|The weather was starting to change now, there would be very little blue sky after this.|
Anyway here we look back across Stickle Tarn to Harrison Stickle
|Here from the summit of Pavey Ark we look across to Sergeant Man, just catching some sun.|
|There was quite a bit of snow as I contoured round to Harrison Stickle. It had a lovely thick crust on it though, nice easy going.|
|Not a day to linger as I said earlier, back to the col before descending to cross the head of Dungeon Ghyll.|
Loft Crag on the left and the cone of Pike O'Stickle on the right.
|The last few metres to the summit of Pike O'Stickle required a bit of care the hard frozen snow a little tricky.|
This view was the reward, looking back to Harrison Stickle on the left, and my final "Pike" today Loft Crag on the right.
|Looking back to Pike O'Stickle, from Loft Crag. The peak in the distance with the sunlight on is Great Gable.|
|Back in the valley all was green, and overcast.|
