/ Ravens Tor, Dovedale Clean Up.

Gary Gibson - on 08 Jan 2018
Dovedale another very rewarding day tidying up this crag as per the agreement between the National Trust, Natural England, the BMC and the Peak Area meeting in June 2017, just in time for the new BMC guide. I have managed to clean and remove the ivy on Raven, Gastrocnemius Rex, Central Wall, Venery and Parrot Face to make them eminently climbable. I have also replaced the belay on Southern Rib, the old pegs of which cam out in me hand guv. Please help keep this crag clean by climbing on it. Only a little bit to do on Tissington Spires now, perhaps tomorrow, weather permitting.

Thanks for that Gary. The place looked sadly neglected (in need of a good clean) on Saturday as we returned from Tissington Spires. Will be back soon

Makes me feel a bit guilty that i only clean a couple of routes each year.

Will donate to your bolt fund next time i see you.
Enjoy.

We did some gardening on the spires last season, great routes and under climbed. Thanks very much for all your work on the trad routes, really greatful.
PS watch out on the top, I got a hand full of bird guts when I reached to pull myself up.
