A Few Facts About Great Stickle

Location -
Great Stickle is a fell located in the southern Lake District with an altitude of 305 metres (1,001 feet). Alfred Wainwright included it in the Stickle Pike chapter of his "The Outlying Fells of Lakeland". Geographically the fell is located on the southern ridge of Stickle Pike and is located between the lower Duddon Valley (west) and the valley of Dunnerdale Beck (east). A "stickle" is a hill with a prominent rocky top. The area is quite rugged with several craggy outcrops. It is generally climbed in combination with Stickle Pike the ridge between the two summits offering an interesting traverse and excellent views to the Furness Peninsula and the southern fells.

Summit And View -
Great Stickle's summit has a Triangulation Point and the views from the top are excellent.
