Crag features

The boulders dry fairly quickly, but the crucial part of the rolling rocks faces north east, therefore can be very cold in winter. Unaffected by the bird ban on raven crag.
This large impressive block is around 15 feet (5m) high and located at the southern end of Patterdale, below the foreboding turrets of Raven Crag, Threshthwaite Cove. There are currently 10 problems on the main block, with the prospect for a couple of tough projects. The main event (and worth the visit in its own right) is the superb arete of Jungle Hobo (7B+) and the sitter to the same line, Grand Unification (7C+). These would be considered classics anywhere! There are also a number of smaller blocks scattered among the scree and next to the track above the Rolling Rock, the only other boulder worth noting is the lost and found boulder up and left of the rolling rock on the edge of the scree with some good mid grade problems. the other boulders dotted around offer a few reasonable shorter problems, mostly in the lower grades.
From the free car park in the small village of Hartsop, take a major track south out of the village across a beck (Pasture Beck) and continue (flanking the west side of the beck) south up the valley for 1.4km (¾ of a mile) to the base of Raven Crag, Threshthwaite Cove. Here you will see many blocks strewn around the base the crag, the Rolling Rock is hidden from view, on the east side of the track (on the upper edge of the slight gorge) directly below the main crag
