Childhood's End*** E4 6a
[Paul Ingham on the final hard moves on Childhood's End, Ravensheugh Crag. 1979., 3 kb]14m.

Rockfax Description
14m. Start round to the right and climb leftwards to gain the base of the shallow left-trending groove. Climb this, sustained and excellent, until the groove fizzles out and a tricky little traverse scoots left into the upper section of Ravensheugh Crack. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
An utterly Brilliant route and a benchmark at the grade. The start is bouldery and soon leads to ok gear and a long reach (crux?)to the flake. Storm up this, filling the crack with good cams. From here make Gaia-esqe (no feet- albeit easier) moves across to a beautiful jamming finish.
