A walker has died after falling from a scrambling route in the Lake District.

The woman was seen to fall from Jack’s Rake on Pavey Ark on Sunday morning.

Langdale Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 11.15am and the Great North Air Ambulance flew to the site above Great Langdale.

A Langdale Ambleside MRT spokesperson said: “Unfortunately it was determined that she’d died of the injuries sustained in the fall.”

Jack’s Rake is a grade-one scramble that rises across the south-east face of Pavey Ark. Guidebook author Alfred Wainwright described the route as ‘just about the limit that the ordinary common or garden fell walker reasonably may be expected to attempt’.
