Langdale Pikes

A view across Great Langdale to the Langdale Pikes. The tallest point on the Left is Pike of Stickle. Just to the right of this pike is a scree run at the top of which the archaeologists tell us was the site of the stone age Langdale axe industry. Axes of the Greenstone rock have been found across Britain suggesting that a major productive industry was taking place. What I wonder is how did Neolithic man discover such a narrow band of rock high up the fell which would be quite a climb up the scree slope, not a hike I would relish.
