Cheers Rog - I didn't notice that! I've assumed that the logbook ticks should be Route 1 and have moved them. George.

I think that Original Route (S) should not figure on this crag as no such route exists in the definitive guide. Maybe confused with the other Raven. Crag?

No sign of the belay stakes promised by the guidebook. Belays available but can take some searching out.
