Done in pouring rain, crack was disgustingly wet and the ledges wet, but still nice climb and takes a wonderful line. Led in one pitch, rope drag was fine.

Lead the second pitch and crossed the main butress in raven rock gully, just above the horizontal crack, to finish on raven rock gully left hand.

I struggled with the crack and had to treverse right to go up the larger crack. Other than that no probs! Great climb and a very tight squeeze at the end! The rope drag was horrendous. Do it in two pitches!

I did it in one pitch, and had so much rope drag that I had to untie one of my doubles and leave it attached to some gear for my second to find. I just could not move forward at one stage!

1st pitch of Via Dolorosa: Ronnie Kwok, 2nd pitch & finish up Raven Rock Gully: me.
Did first 2 pitches of Via Dolorosa but finished up Raven Rock Gully due to rain and the last pitch being incredibly green.
Stuart William - AltLd O/S - 23/Jan/11 with Ronnie Kwok
Meant to climb Via Dolorosa but got caught out by the rain on the last (crux) pitch so finished in the cave/chimney/rat-hole!
