Jack's Rake is a famous diagonal groove up a Lake District rock face. It's tough, but not too tough - so can a newby climber manage it? Helping Emily Knight up the face is Anna Fleming, author of Time on Rock, plus Langdale native Bill Birkett who's made a few first ascents in the Lakes. On the way they talk about the rock, the attitude, and the kit.

Catch it on the following link

In reply to Sean Kelly:

Enjoyed it, especially Bill Birkett.

Anna Fleming mentioned 1st time climbing in the Peak being surrounded by "weird men".

Come on, fess up ukc, who were the weird men climbing in the Peak c. 10 years ago

In reply to Sean Kelly:

Quite a pleasant listen. One or two mentions of Classic Rock, with no explanation. Don’t know what the casual listener would make of that.

Cragswag rules officially declared on R4. I’m glad we’ve finally cleared that up.
