Start point: Kiln Bank Cross
(SD 215 933)
Kiln Bank Cross -
Stickle Pike (OF)
The Dunnerdale Fells
Great Stickle (OF) -
Kiln Bank Cross
Weather: Sunny and bright.
Today's walk is a Wainwright/Birkett
hybrid, taking in Stickle Pike - a personal favourite, the undulating
Tarn Hill, a vague top named 'Dunnerdale Fells' (a separate 'Outlying
Fell' walk chapter by Wainwright) and Great Stickle. The views to the
north were superb, especially towards the end when the clouds lifted
from the high fells.
