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
Ascent by Stickle Ghyll and Stickle Tarn to Pavey Ark via East. On to Thunacar Knott, Harrison Stickle, Loft Crag and Pike of Stickle. On to Rossett Pike via Martcrag Moor.raymooremanx22/06/2018
From Pavey Ark we made the short trip across to Thunacar Knott. A summit we would come back to later after Sergeants man for pictures as there was someone at the summit and we had to come back over anyway. Pretty unimpressive after what we had just done but very easy. I couldnt decide from here what to do next whether to go to Pike O Stickle or the longer way to High Raise. After some umming and Arring we decided on High Raise.Scotty 2 Hotty19/06/2018
