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.

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.
