Some proper climbing for a change… Walk 96

May 3, 2015

Climbing South Rake, from below

Climbing South Rake: one of only two spots where I felt comfortable enough to get the camera out…

Many of my walks in the last couple of years, since I started on the Outlying Fells, have borne no resemblance to ‘mountain climbing’ — which is not to say they have been unsatisfactory.

The trip I made this weekend, however, was a definite exception, thanks to hauling myself up the face of Dow Crag via the route known as South Rake. Having embarked on a second round of Wainwrights, I want to try routes that I didn’t do the first time, particularly if they sound interesting or adventurous — and South Rake definitely was that. Read about it on the walk 96 page.

The walk also took in the outlier that is Walna Scar, which means that I have now bagged (for the first time) 303 of the 330 Wainwrights and have 27 to go.

It's always nice to hear what you think....
