The Langdale Pikes

The Langdale Pikes

Product Review (submitted on 19 February 2016):
My son and I had a fantastic day climbing The Langdale Pikes. We booked to join the scheduled walk and as it turned out we had John all to ourselves. Without going overboard the day was marvelous. The weather was perfect and the snowline began just above Stickle Tarn. my son bounded up and down the mountain but I was a fair bit slower and less confident. John was with me all the way, introducing us to crampons and ice axes at just the right time. Being unfamiliar to the area, joining The Lake District Walker meant I didn't have to concern myself with map reading, or worry about any safety aspects. In addition we got a taste of the expert knowledge that John has of the area, it's geology and history. I can't think of a better way to enjoy the mountains and look forward to joining The Lake District Walker on our next visit.
