From Harrison Stickle. Took the path around the coombe above the crags up to the summit. Then descended steeply into the Bright Beck dale, having trouble finding the path in its upper reaches.

Walked as part of a bagging round with Tony, Dave and his colleague Chris. Dull but dry day with a moderate breeze. Walked up Whitegill Ravine then to Stickle Tarn and up Jack's Rake. I found the rake more of a challenge than Crib Goch, Sharp Edge etc etc - it was steeper in places than I expected and with greater exposure and more awkward spots than anticipated. From Pavey's summit Tony and I strolled to Thunacar Knot and waited while Dave and Chris went to tick Sergeant Man and High Raise. Then we all walked up Harrison from where Tony went down to meet Carol at the pub. Dave, Chris and I went on to Pike O Stickle and Loft Crag then down the Mark Gate path. Stayed at Sykeside.Skip29/09/2018

Having done a huge cycle that day, Fred and I walked up Stickle Ghyll in the dark and camped just on the bank of Stickle Tarn. The next moning, we scrambled up Jack's Rake/Pavey Ark to the edge just under Thunacar Knott. We then ambled back down to all the way to New Hotel for breakfast before the long dive to Bristol via Manchester to collect Bethany on our way to Devon!ByronHaywood29/08/2018

Via Jacks Rakealanm924/07/2018
Headed up from behind Stickle barn pub to the tarn. Then we took the path to the left round the tarn to start the ascent up Jack's rake. Lovely scramble. Good hand and feet holds but a bit of route finding needed on this scramble and the ability to scramble essential. My friend assisted a couple who got stuck on the first section and advised them on a few other parts too. Really enjoyable as it was a good hot day.Zoe Little06/07/2018
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
Having been ill and missing out on walking on the monday of our holiday today was not only my birthday but our 1st walk of the week. Setting off from Sticklebarn around 6ish we made our way up the fantastic route along side the numerous waterfalls. I was still feeling the effects of the previous 2 days illness and had to stop several times to be sick and was very slow going up to the tarn. Once at the tarn we got our first proper view of the infamous Jacks Rake! All of a sudden I felt better! We made our way round the tarn where I had a runny sh1t behind a boulder before making our way to Jacks rake. It looked an awful lot steeper at the foot of it but away we went. It was steep, it was hard and it was dangerous but it was very very fun at the same time! Loved it. Few moments of tears and being stuck from Bec but she did it and I was very proud. Once out of the rake it was a steep scramble to the summit. This was one of if not my favourite route to a summit. AMAZING!Scotty 2 Hotty19/06/2018
