10.5 mile linear walk starting in Langdale, climbing steeply up Mark Gate path around Loft Crag and scrambled onto Pike of Stickle, went back along and ascended Loft Crag, back down and across to Harrison Stickle, then around to Pavey Ark wainwright, then across to Thunacar Knott, then contoured around to Sergeant Man Wainwright then easy ascent to High Raise, descended and took path onto Calf Crag then along smaller path to Steel Fell finishing up at Steel End car park. Glorious day, sun with thin layer of cloud way above most summits so no direct sunlight, busy as usual, great views.DanTrig23/06/2018

We made our way across to Loft Crag or so we thought…we went to what looked like the obvious peak we took our pictures and moved on. On the way to Harrison Stickle whilst looking at the GPS I wasn’t convinced we’d been on the summit and made our way to the cairn on the edge under HS just to be sure. A decision Bec nearly had a breakdown over as we were about 9 hours in at the point. If nothing else it was a great view point and we had covered all bases.

Just a few minutes walk from Pike O' Stickle onto Loft Crag. Couldn't have chosen a better day to do these peaks. However, descent via Mark Gate back to New Dungeon Ghyll cp was very hard on the knees and feet. All worth it.Peak Rambler10/05/2018
