November in the Langdales

On a cracking November weekend members of Nuneaton Mountaineering Club camped at the National Trust Great Langdale campsite in the Lake District. On Saturday they climbed the stony path up to Stickle Tarn which is a popular hill walking destination in Great Langdale even in the winter. Climbing further they reached Pavy Ark before moving on to Harrison Stickle, Loft Crag and Pike O’ Stickle which are collectively known as the Langdale Pikes and are prominent on the Lake District skyline from many directions. The weather was fine with strong Autumn colours and distant views over much of the Lake District. There was the odd shower but nothing to detract from a great day on the hills. Further on Stake Pass was reached before the descent to the side valley of Mickleden and a return to the campsite in Great LangdaleOn Sunday there was a more gentle morning walk to Blea Tarn and Wrynose Pass before it was time for the journey home.
