A fabulous day out to explore the Mickleden Valley and a steep ascent up Stake Pass, before turning sharply south to work towards Pike of Stickle and onto Harrison Stickle. Down to stickle Tarn is quite technical for some, but time can be taken to take care down these steps.
Stickle Tarn can be a rewarding time for a dip in Summer, or a paddle maybe before our return to the valley floor down a grass track a little off the beaten track (if the beck is impassable to cross due to excess water, then we return down the main stepped route). This route is 15km & 950m ascent.
