[Ravensheugh Crack, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
12m. Another of the superb jamming cracks that the crag abounds with. A tricky groove leads to a ledge then move right and motor up the soaring crack-line. © ROCKFAX

Fantastic! Got up from the big ledge into the crack but forgot where my other leg was going and had to hang on the rope. Superb Sarah-sized fist jams al the way :-D Leading would be a different story with gear and ropes getting in the way!
