Conclusor*** HVS 5a
[Conclusor at Ravensdale, 4 kb]44m.

Rockfax Description
A fine route with good climbing and a reachy couple of moves just before easy ground is gained. The best route on the crag - possibly. Make sure to take a decent sized rack especially if you intend to do it as a single pitch. Start under the soaring groove.
1) 4c 12m. Follow the small groove to a stance on the ledge.
2) 5a, 30m. Climb the well-defined groove-line running up the left side of the main face. © ROCKFAX

john lynch - Lead - 13/Sep/15 with Bethan D

As one long pitch. Spaffed my whole rack in it - take plenty of wires (and quickdraws)! Felt nervy with the occasional polish, loose stuff and general sustained nature of it. Never felt scared or like I was going to fall off as the climbing is never hard, but a low level sense of 'I hope I get out of this alive'. Great to be back on Peak limestone :)

hlegge - Lead O/S - 07/Aug/13 with Dan Gyi

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 07/Aug/13

Excellent route - just what I was hoping to find at Ravensdale (not like Medusa...). Might be a 3star route if it weren't for the polish. Interest sustained throughout P2, but there are enough rests/semi-rests that it doesn't get particularly pumpy. Do it before it gets even shinier.

Straightforward line, but not straightforward moves! I did not want to finger-jam at the crux as two fingers were bleeding from the previous route, so had to think. Good and technical route with sustained interests.
