/ dads old expedition photos
I have also found these 2 and cant work out the crag, if you look closely you can see where the pitches have been split in pen, not sure if this was a first assent or what
any ideas where it is? assuming its in the UK
Somewhere in Dovedale?
ohh maybe actually does look similar, no chance of finding what route is marked then :P
That's Ravens Tor in Dovedale. The marking looks like Left Hand Route put up by John Sumner and Brian Knox in 1950 as an aided route. Jack Street and Geoff Birtles free climbed it in 1967.
ohhh brill cheers mate :D he died when I was a kid and Ive lost all his old guide books so have no idea what grade he climbed lol
By the way that crag is in the Peak, not the peaks. :-)
Actually you won't find a guidebook to the peaks, though there are many for The Peak.
Routes like 'Pedant crack' for example
