Rockfax Description
A classic polished Peak landmark. There are a few ways of doing the lower crux and the upper wall is not to be underestimated with a tricky move or two moving right near the top. © Rockfax

FA. Ron Fawcett 1981. This ascent signified the change of Raven Tor from an aid climbing crag to a free climbing crag..

βeta: newer left hand version of the crux , ( past the added bolt ) easier than the original , no more than 7b with this sequence . But understandable that it is now the more used way as the line is more logical perhaps
