Re: New Crag "starvation" with main route "The Revenant" 5.1

Hi, the name "The Revenant" has already been taken. I guess it's debatable where the official registrar of climbing names is, but I sent mine to a guidebook author a ways back. Btw, it's in Rogues beside Sanctuary. Having said all that, 2 routes of the same name could be fine too

Pet Wall new route

Contradiction in Terms
13a/b??
35m
Just right of No Name Road. 3 boulder problems with good rests in between. Very hard to get an accurate grade. Condition dependant and the top cruxes are way harder if you don't have a big wingspan.
