Thunacar Knott



Grid Reference: NY 27967 07990
Height: 723 metres/2372 feet

"a romantic setting, inurned in bracken clad moraines with a background of craggy fells."
A Wainwright

The true summit of Pavey Ark lies, in fact a short distance to the north west of the cliff, Thuncar Knott, the culmination of the gently rising ground at the top of Pavey Ark which after a slight drop eventually continues north to the summit of High Raise.

Not the most inspiring summit but only a short detour from the route between Pavey Ark and Harrison Stickle on a circuit of the Langdale Pikes brings you to the summit with good views to the Scafell range to the west
