Kevin Foster climbed on September 29th, 2020 [from/via/route] Stickle Ghyll car park. [with] By myself. [weather] Sunny with light cool breeze (perfect conditions). - Loft Crag was the last and lowest of the four summits I visited today. Having said that it should definitely not be overlooked on any visit to this area. An easy walk from Pike O'Stickle once I'd managed to scramble back down again the way I came up. Again this is another compact top with superb and intimate views into upper Langdale.

Andy Buxton bagged during August, 1968 [from/via/route] From NDG - circuit of Langdale (Pavey Ark via Jack's Rake) [with] Dad [weather] Clear

Phil Higgins hiked on December 28th, 2008 [from/via/route] Pike How, Harrison Stickle [weather] Bright, cold day - With Tilly.

Richard Marchant bagged on October 20th, 2012 [from/via/route] This route took us from New Dungeon Ghyll up Stickle Ghyll to Stickle Tarn. We then ascended up Pavey Ark via Jack's Rake which resulted in some spectacular views of the clouds starting to come in through the valleys with the mountain tops poking out of the clouds. Once at the top we had a quick bite to eat and then walked to Harrison Stickle-Loft Crag-Pike of Stickle and then descended back down in to Langdale and back to the car. [with] My oldest son James [weather] Fine to start with but clouds came in during the afternoon and the rain stayed off in the morning. - James's first ascent of Jack's Rake, a great day out with some spectacular views especially of the clouds coming up through the valley leaving the mountains poking out over the clouds in the afternoon.
