On Thursday, we hiked “The Langdales”, starting from the vicinity of Elterwater, and ending at Walker’s Bar, at the bottom of Stickle Ghyll. Later, we returned to Elterwater, Britannia Inn for a nice dinner.
This is a view looking west toward Stickle Tarn, a lake that sits at an elevation of about 1520 ft. The tarn feeds a stream, Stickle Ghyll (behind the hill on left), that descends over 1000 ft in less than 1 mile. The mountains behind the tarn are the more distant Harrison Stickle (2402 ft) on left, and Pavey Ark (2297 ft) on right. We hiked to this tarn from the east, starting in the vicinity of Elterwater, returning to the south via a path that descends with Stickle Ghyll. The total hike covered 6.5 miles, with an ascent of 1,555 ft, and we covered it in 5 hours and 53 minutes.
