I slept in for this trip we were supposed to leave at 0500 and try and get some way up the hill in the hope of watching the sunrise from the summit of High Raise but alas twas not too be.
On the way over Andrew suggested we scrambled Jack's Rake - as a vertiginous coward I declined the invitation.

Harrison Stickle, High Raise, Loft Crag, Pavey Ark, Pike o'Stickle, Sergeant Man, Thunacar Knott - Seven Wainwrights in one winters day.

By now it was really cold - the wind chill was quite severe but we were still getting nice views as the cloud cover was still hovering around the bigger peaks.

Well done on completing all those Wainwrights and some good photos :thumbup:

We always used to include Sergeant Man and Pavey Ark in a circular walk that went up Far Easdale and back down via Blea Rigg and Easdale Tarn :D
