Sticks Pass

 

Sticks Pass has the honour of being the highest regularly used "NAMED" pass in the Lake District. The highest point of the pass crosses at over 2400ft asl. Esk Hause exceeds this by almost 100ft, but Esk Hause is not named Esk Pass. The pass itself offers the only realistic crossing between Thirlmere and Ullswater, the highest point of the pass being between Stybarrow Dodd and Raise.

At some point in the past, a line of wooden fence posts lined the route across the higher section of the pass, , , , hence the name.
