RAVENSDALE


Looking west out over the attractive wooded valley of Cressbrook Dale, Ravensdale crag has a lot to offer the climber operating at the VS and HVS level as orange-spot routes abound here. The tall Raven Buttress, directly above the cottages, contains some long, attractive routes with plenty of exposure and an almost a mountain-crag atmosphere. Further left is a cluster of interesting shorter climbs surround the natural arch of the Flying Buttress Area.
