Here we have Pike of Stickle gully, a chap fell 200 metres 1 hour after
i took this shot, he survived with broken ribs, as he fell on snow. Then
we have my three buddies (Barton, Sam and Patch) standing next to
Dungeon Gill Force, then finally 'mad' patch standing on a frozen
Stickle Tarn.

Easy Gully

(viewed 1240 times)
Here we have what is called 'Easy Gully' a 300 foot climb up a 50 degree gully bocked by chock stones at the top. It tooks an hour to climb the 300 feet, chopping steps in the Ice, when we reached the chock stones the chimney was covered in ice and we had to turn back. It is only Easy compared to Jakes Rake!
