High Raise


High Raise (Cairn(s)) by The Eternal 25-02-06 High Raise from Helvellyn, looking E. High Raise is part of the long R*man road of High Street. High street summit is the high point to the right of High Raise.
It's a gratuitous photo, but what the Hell. What a day it was. Red Tarn is the inky pool on the lower left, with the arete of Striding Edge on the right. On the day I witnessed a near-death, as a walker slid down the icy slopes towards Thirlmere. The snow was iron-hard. Thankfully he got away with his life. Always take an ice-axe and crampons on the fells when snow is about - they were essential on this day, especially on the edges. The mountains can be unforgiving.
