Lead P1,3,4 all in trainers. Some reasonable climbing, but no way 3 stars. P4 is just a scramble. Dave lead P2. Went a bit off route on first pitch, stepping right as the groove becomes a bit grassy, rather than left. Harder, but rock seemed nicer.

Arrived to a very damp Raven crag, planned to do Corvus but a party of three had just arrived and were slowly unloading gear. Decided to RCB whilst they get their act together, at the top of P1 they retreated and left the crag. Turned out to be a great thing. By P2 the crag/route was soaking wet and it was raining. Great challenge, being my first wet climb. Strangely enjoyable in the wet.

twas awful- Rain, wind, greese, moss, grass. i lead about 20metres, then turned back, cause it was so bad. Big Ian then ran out 40metres, belayed me and other Ian up. Ian lead the last bit of grass. I think we got the wrong line. pitty there was some people on corvus.
