Ravensnest Tor

Climbs 29 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 285m a.s.l – Faces NE

Crag features
A big gritstone crag (almost 30m at its highest) of variable quality, generally friable lower down but better higher up. A steep vegetated bank gives finishes to most of the routes. Dismissed in the past because of its friable, blocky appearance it nevertheless provides some very good, sometimes adventurous, climbing. Some large dubious blocks need care.

Approach notes
Parking is off the lane leading NE from Red House Farm on Holestone Gate Rd. Follow the lane for 60m beyond the wood on the right. Cross the stone wall on the right and follow the path down through the field. Join another footpath running along the edge of the wood and follow this rightwards and uphill for 400m. The righthand end of the Tor can be seen where the footpath levels out. Tracks lead down at either end.

Well worth a visit. Plenty to occupy for a full day out. Big routes, quite adventurous. Intersting climbing neither pumpy or fingery, but sort of all over 'involving'. "The Raven" was the best quality route we climbed - almost 3 stars!
