Restricted Access

Ramshaw is home to some of the hardest routes in Britain and most of them are graded HVS - a Yosemite style tape job is the only access requirement! There are no access problems at the main crag. However, do not try and climb at Lady Rock (the buttresses on the far right above the farm house), these are not on access land, the owner lives very close and has been confrontational.


Rockfax Description
10m. The elegant arete of Dangerous Crocodile Snogging is technical and bold, and involves vertical 'a cheval' movements taken at a gallop, in an effort to gain height. Formerly soloed (at E8). A distant massive cam or possibly something even larger may protect ....... well sort of! Impossible for most and especially the short! © Rockfax

FA. Seb Grieve Friday 13 September 1991. A typical choice of date for Seb to solo the first ascent.
