An Afternoon Walk to High Raise

This had been planned to be an all day walk...but a really wet morning meant that Ian and I didn't start walking from the New Dungeon Gill until almost 1pm. We were on a bit of a mission to visit High Raise, so off we went up Mill Gill in the company of many visitors.....

A late start did mean that most of the folk were in front of us....across the valley Lingmoor Fell fills the view

Pavey Ark across Stickle Tarn

Round Stickle Tarn then we followed Bright Beck which gave us an easy climb towards Sergeant Man

Here on a rocky knoll between Sergeant Man and High Raise there were superb views towards Windermere

And East to the Helvellyn range

Ian on the summit of High Raise....mission accomplished!

Back towards Langdale over Thurnacar Knott, then down beside Dungeon Gill

Lingmoor Fell, Langdale and beyond looking great in the evening light

A final look back at Mill Gill, Pavey Ark and Harrison Stickle before the final descent to the car at New Dungeon Gill.
A grand afternoon trot round the Pikes.
