Day walk linked with the Lake District Activity Week including a Grade 1 scramble from Stickle Ghyll National Trust Car Park. The route ascends Jack's Rake, one of the most well known scrambles in the Lake District, shortly after passing the beautiful Stickle Tarn. This will involve a combination of walking and some steep sections involving hands to ascend, so will need some confidence with heights and climbing too. We will then take in the summits of Pavey Ark (702m) and Pike o' Stickle (709m) and Harrison Stickle (736m) before descending back to the campsite/pub...

Please note: due to the nature of this activity, a good level of fitness and climbing ability is recommended if participating on this event. Please get in touch if you're unsure at all :)
