Sticks Pass to Raise and White Side

Sticks Pass is the second highest mountain pass in the Lake District, one of those old ways used in past days to link Glenridding and Patterdale with the areas around St Johns-in-the-Vale and Wythburn.

When out walking a new route, I often think about how, when I have completed the walk, I should look up and find out more information about some of the places I have seen. This does not actually happen as often as it should. Hopefully, this site will go some way to redressing this.
