Raven Tor

UKClimbing.com | TheCrag.com | 8a.nu

Raven Tor is a crag in the UK's Peak District that is known for it's concentration of hard, crimpy sport climbs. Most famously, it is home to Hubble, Ben Moon's desperate route from 1990 which was the first 9a in the world.

Slightly more recently, Steve McClure established Mutation in 1998 adding the hardest route at the crag. At the time Steve suggested a grade of 9a but it has proven very tricky to repeat with Will Bosi suggesting the upgrade after taking many sessions to repeat it.
