The rain was heavy throughout last night which of course fell as snow above 300m. I walked Stickle Pike but the view to the high fells was mostly obliterated by the angry looking snow clouds today. Just because Stickle Pike is small in stature, it doesn’t make the climb or descent any easier when there is wet, slippery snow around – as I found out to my cost!
