2007 01 25 - Dollywaggon Pike, High Crag and Nethermost Pike with Paul D.

We set off up Raise Beck from Dunmail Raise with the promise of sunshine and clear views. We were not disappointed. We had blue skies and good visibility all the way despite some high clouds and the ice-cold winds on the tops. There were superb views of snow covered St Sunday Crag, Fairfield and Seat Sandal, not to mention Striding Edge with a procession of walkers strung out along its back making their careful progress towards Helvellyn. We descended via Comb Crags to conclude an excellent walk.
