A selection of short and long (three pitch) routes on six different buttresses along the hillside above the Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel. Good selection at all grades. Quick drying. Best routes – Middlefell Buttress(D), Original Route(S), Revelation(HS), Bilberry Buttress(VS), Pluto(HVS), Trilogy(E5), R ‘n’ S Special(E5), Centrefold(E6), Dawes Rides a Shovelhead(E8). Take care on the SE descent past the large block above the top of Revelation, which was affected by rockfall in August 2018 – further information on an alternative (abseil) descent has been posted here: https://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/rocktalk/more_on_raven_crag_rockfall-691587
Park in the car park at the Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel (arrive early at weekends, give up on Bank Holidays!). Crags are 10 – 15 min. walk up behind the pub(which is not to be missed at the end of the day!)
At busy times the much larger car park at NDG can be used. There is a pleasant walk through the fields from the western end of the NDG car park – through the stile and follow your nose to ODG.
