A family of five became cragfast near the top of Jack's Rake. The alarm was raised by a third party who witnessed their struggle. The team was mobilised to assist. The two parents managed to scramble out, but wisely made their offspring stay put where the were safe, but stranded. We recovered the three young people by descending to them, fixing ropes and then guiding them back up to the top. We then all descended to the valley. Conditions were 'interesting', with heavy rain, hail and occasional strong winds.
