Raven's Scar

North York Moors

On the north side of Hasty Bank. Very good climbing despite its northerly aspect.

The crag has excellent routes across the grades but due to the northerly aspect it is slow to come into condition.The summer months provide the best opportunity to experience a number of Moors classics and in a good winterTumbledown Dick is worth the effort. 

March 2018, a European Eagle Owl has been resident along the escarpment with a number of roosts on Ravenscar. They can be aggressive, especially during the spring breeding season and there are numerous reports of this individual "swooping" on people and dogs. They enjoy the same protection from disturbance as other birds.

CRoW Information

Open access land, designated under the Countryside & Rights of Way Act (2000) give area access rather than linear access as provided by public rights of way. It also gives a legal right of access specifically for climbing, as well as walking and other quiet recreation on foot.

Please bear in mind however that the landowner still has the right to restrict access for up to 28 days per year (often used on public safety grounds for shooting in moorland areas), and can also apply for longer term restrictions with Natural England (such as bans on dogs, or regular restrictions during particular times of year). It is important to check for these restrictions regularly as they can be added at short notice – all details for open access land in England can be found on Natural England’s website.
