Around the back of Pavey Ark

The last full day we headed up to the Langdales to explore.

We headed up the path from the Old Dungeon Ghyll, and was passed by several other walkers - include a lady carrying her toddler on her shoulders.  Caroline (and I) was very impressed with her not having to use hands on the boulders.  

First view over Stickle Tarn at Harrison Stickle on the left and Pavey Ark on the right.

Caroline, being gently garrotted by the map case.

Not feeling brave enough for Jack's Rake, we headed to the right of Pavey Ark. 

View looking back with Blea Rigg on the left.

Finally to the top, the small matter of the waterlogged ground to cross to get to Pavey's Ark. 

At the top, looking towards Harrison Stickle

Caroline admiring the view back down the Langdale valley.

Me, not knowing how to pose for the camera.

Looking back towards Pavey Ark.

At Harrison Stickle.

Now looking towards Pike O' Stickle, the bump across the way.

Heading across the path. 

Looking at the approach to the climb up to the top.

From Pike O' Stickle, looking towards Blea Tarn and Squeeze Rock/Side Pike.

With Harrison Stickle on the left and Loft Crag on the right.

Heading back down, with what now seems a criminal disregard for other nearby Wainwrights.

Caroline, enjoying this part of the descent.

The flatter section before we start dropping faster down..
