Jack's Rake is a grade 1 scramble up across the face of Pavey Ark. A lot of the climb is in a groove so there is less feeling of exposure than say Striding Edge or Sharp Edge, having said that I found it technically harder than either of them.

I last climbed Jack's Rake 20 years ago, I was leaner and more agile back then!

This walk features in Mark Richard's new walking guide 'Great Mountain Days in the Lake District'.
