Ravensheugh History

First Ascent List

5 May 5TradHang em High, E5 6bGraeme Read
 Unseconded Belayed by Steve Kirkup
Ive given it this grade because I feel both Redskin and Sitting Bull (both given E2) should go up a grade. The climbing on these two routes is certainly easier than Hang em High but a fall from the slab on any of the routes would result in a ground fall. I suppose you could say "Ravensheugh E4" would be more appropriate and more in keeping in line with the majority of the other extremes on the crag!
