Langdale Fells

Dean towards the end of Jack's Rake

Seven Wainwrights today plus Jack's Rake on Pavey Ark, some classic Lake District fells.  We set off from The Stickle Barn, straight up the steep path to Stickle Tarn, around to the right and up the thrilling Jack's Rake on to Pavey Ark.  From here there was a choice of either Sergeant Man or High Raise.  Whichever we chose, we would go on to the other one next.  We ended up going up to Sergeant Man and then on to High Raise, turning around to bag Thunacar Knott, not an impressive peak but seemingly the natural high point of this range.  Then on to Harrison Stickle, Pike of Stickle and catching Loft Crag on the way back.
