2020 will mark the 50th year since the formation of the Langdale & Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team, and LMG are collaborating with them to help them celebrate in the way we know best - by lighting up the fells!

There will be a good 1.5-2 hours of walking as you hike to the summit of either Pike 'O Stickle, Loft Crag or Harrisons Stickle via 'Mark Gate'. As per all LFOL events there is an element of standing around but the atmosphere such an event creates cannot be described. Following the 'light up', during which pro photographers who will be stationed across the valley will get some shots, we will descend back to the Sticklebarn for last orders.

The event is a celebration of LAMRT, however it will also be used to raise funds for 2 charities. These will be the Lake District Search and Rescue Association and Fix the Fells. More info on these charities can be found in the links below.  We ask that everyone who attends the event makes a donation to both or either charity. This can be done through cash on the night or via a link which is due to be set up.

I possibly might camp over at the Great Langdale NT campsite depending on work commitments but feel free to do so either way.

Suitability to the event: Due to the nature of this event it is best suited to those with previous walking experience and reasonable fitness. 

You need to come appropriately equipped for the conditions. Being early spring it is bound to be cold up there, especially when standing around. Bring more layers than you think you'll need as well as hot drinks. You need to bring your own torch.
