High Raise – 19 April

Up out of Borrowdale by Greenup Gill to Lining Crag, Low White Stones and High Raise. In complete contrast to yesterday, glimpses of the sun were fleeting and the sky was leaden. Every now and again we come across memorials to those who were quite as fortunate and didn’t make back down the hill and here we found a small plaque to the memory of Gordon Hallworth, a Manchester University Climbing Club member.
