792 Langdale Pikes

The Langdale Pikes must be the best known skyline in England and the ascent is like a stairway to heaven. Heaven though is only reached with great effort and mile for mile this must be one of the steepest in the Lake District, but on the summits of Harrison Stickle, Pike of Stickle and Loft Crag you feel on top of the world.
