Area: Central
Ordnance Survey: OL7
Wainwright Guidebook: Three

Jack’s Rake is classified as a ROCK CLIMB. Its grading is easy – it is the easiest of the recognised climbs in the Langdale area. Nonetheless, as a WALK it is both difficult & awkward: in fact, for much of the way the body is propelled forwards by a series of convulsions unrelated to normal walking,the knees & elbows contributing as much to progress as hands and feet. Walkers who can still put there toes in there mouths and bring their knees up to there chins may embark on the ascent confidently; others unable to perform these tests, will find the route arduous.

Jack’s Rake’s is just about the limit that the ordinary common garden or fell walker reasonably may be expected to attempt.
