Crag features

Good selection of short (20-25m) mainly single pitch middle grade routes. There is loose rock on routes, but managable. Dries quite quickly in summer. Harder routes are quite bold. Don't miss Route 2(HS), Tritus/Protus(HVS).

Good evening crag - close to Wainwrights Inn!!

Approach notes

Parking directly below the crag. 5 minute steady uphill approach.

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.
