Ravensdale

Derbyshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 67 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 300m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
An excellent venue for low/middle grade traditional climbing with multi-pitch routes up to 46m long on the main buttress. Good quality rock with great exposure and fine views. Never too busy, but classic routes e.g. Gymnic (VS 4c) and Medusa (VS 4b,4b) are polished. Other great outings include Delusor (VS 4c), Via Vita (HVS 5a, 5a) and Conclusor (HVS 4c, 5a). Few hard routes, but Wilt (E5 6b) is well-named, well-protected and tricky to flash.

************* IMPORTANT ACCESS NOTE ***************

Spring 2013: Natural England have banned access to the crag as ravens are nesting on Via Vita.

27th May 2013: The ban has been lifted so full access has been restored.

Currently birds nesting in the crack at the start of Purple Haze P2 and (i think) near the belay of Rockbiter. Probably best avoided for the moment.
