A close up of Loft Crag taken from Pike o’Stickle.

Looking across the Langdale Valley from Esk Hause you get the spectacular view of the Langdale Pikes with their distinctive outline.  There’s the flat-topped Harrison Stickle, then the beautifully rounded Pike o’ Stickle followed by last summit of Loft Crag – the clouds look ominous – let’s hope they’re not coming this way!
