Route Map

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.
