The Walks

On the first day the group went from the hotel along to Stickle Ghyll,up to Stickle Tarn, and then onto Harrison Stickle via Jack's Rake. From there the route was over Pike O'Stickle and Martcrag Moor to the top of Stake Pass, then round to the top of Rossett Gill and down to Langdale and the ODG. About 10 miles.

On Friday the party went from the hotel up Langdale and ascended Rossett Gill, then over Esk Hause and down to Sty Head Tarn, descending to the right to Seathwaite. Then the walk was along to Seatoller, Stonethwaite and back to Langdale and the ODG via Langstrath and Stake Pass. 16 miles.

On the final day the cars were taken to Brotherllkeld in Eskdale, from which an ascent was made to Great Moss. The weather was poor and the main group turned back, although Brian, George(?) and Steve P pressed on via Lingcove Beck to Three Tarns, then down to the ODG. 5.5 miles for the main group and about 7 miles for those who went on directly to the hotel.
