This is a superb walk over the fell tops into the next valley. First of all, we climb Stickle Ghyll. which stands just behind the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel. It is steep, and when there is plenty of water in the river very noisy, but well worth it.

With it's impressive backdrop of Pavey Ark, Stickle Tarn is always a wonderful place to stop to enjoy the peace and beauty before the next stage of the walk.

There are several routes over to Easedale. Ours is one of the most direct, although the path is quite steep and in winter or really wet weather this can be quite tricky. This view is looking back at Stickle Tarn from Blea Rigg and shows the layout of the land perfectly. Our route is to the right, passing Belles Knott and Coledale Tarn.

We are blessed with sunshine on the descent to Easedale Tarn. The going gets a lot easier too as the slope eases.

Easedale Tarn, with the bulk of Slapestone Edge deep in shadow. Just out of picture is a rather large, dark cloud. Rain on the way? Maybe, but there is always a positive. It will make the water flow so much faster over Sour Milk Ghyll.

Sour Milk Gill on the descent from Easedale. The rain threatened but held off, so it is not as spectacular as Stickle Ghyll, (note the different spelling) but worth a picture all the same.

One last look back towards Sour Milk Gill, which when in spate can be easily seen from across the valley.

Grasmere, it's a fine and sunny afternoon, with people out enjoying the weather. Now to find a tea room.


The above walk is one of 8 walks featured in "More Walks in the Langdale Valley", and includes the return route from Grasmere to Langdale.
