Lustleigh Cleave (Ravens Rocks)

Climbs 21 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude ? – Faces S

Crag features
A wonderful if difficult to find collection of problems. Problems of all types can be found in this small area including walls, slabs, cracks and some large roofs with spectacular climbing.

The climbing is fairly spread out with Lower Raven rocks being fairly close to the routes at Harton Chest. Upper Raven Rocks is found with the description below and the problems are listed in order from left to right from here back toward Harton Chest.

Access notes
A tricky place to find at the best of times follow the description for Lustleigh Cleve up to to the hill and Harton Chest. From here continue along the plateau for a couple of minutes until you reach a rack used to store fire beaters. From here a 100 yards or so leads to a split in the path, take the left fork and immediately take the vague left path leading to the top of the crag. If you are very lucky! For Lower Raven Rocks take an earlier path just after passing Harton Chest.
