Raven's Glen Info

So if you look in the guide, page 126 you see a mention of Tonduff. Thats not what attracted me though, I can see the rocks from my kitchen window!
Heres where it is:

and here is where the rocks are:

Four lines on the Mother Boulder:

A: Left Arete (easy warm up) - Font 3
B: Creaseproof - Font 6A
C: Mother (classic!) - Font 6A
D: Pain in my Swiss - Font 5+

Sit starts to C and D look obvious but hard. A and B have low starts already. 

Three lines on Dragon Wall:

E: Left Arete (easy from sit in hollow) - Font 3+
F: Albi (start on crimps, reach high left to slopers and top) - Font 6A
G: Trogdor (pull onto sharp crimps, slap top) - Font 6A

Obvious sit start to F and G but small and crimpy!

Will have loads more stuff cleaned and climbed over the next few days :o)

A little video


I love climbing
I love Wicklow
I love finding new unclimbed lines

I've hit the motherload, I'm a happy camper!

Following on from the press release about the wall building plans here is a cheesy clip Dave D slung together to get people interested.... enjoy!

I've been so busy that I've not had much time to do anything physical lately but things are going great on the build and a routine is forming - lots of Blogging to come in the next few days!
