Sticklebarn Tavern, Address: Great Langdale, near Ambleside, Cumbria, LA22 9JU Telephone: 01539 437356
Join us for this lovely grade 1 scramble in the Lake District.
Meeting outside the Sticklebarn at 10:30. We take the hour walk up to Stickle Tarn and then, those who wish to, can join us for the Scramble up Jakes Rake. We will be wearing helmets (pls ask if you need to borrow one). Also we'll take a rope (optional). Others may wish to join us at the top by taking the walkers route.
Although a grade 1 and not too much exposure it can be wet from time to time thus we take precautions and play safely. After emerging at the top we descend between Pavey Ark and Harrison Stickle and then head down to the pub.
Bring good boots, waterproofs, lunch and refreshments.
Please let me know if you would like to borrow a helmet / harness.
National Trust Parking of around £7 / car per day.
Approx times are 1 hour to Stickle tarn, 1.5 hours to top of rake (depending on skills, 30 mins back to tarn, 1 hour back to pub, plus any break for lunch
