Crispy Morning Rock Hopping
by Pepe  17 Jan 2018
Climbed this via the ascent up the Fox's Rock from the Long Woman's Grave. Took the direct route up (steep and slippy!) on a crunchy January morning. The light and the views were magnificent. If you intend making it a hat-trick of rocks by also taking in Eagle's Rock, do bear in mind that the dip between Fox's (Foxes? Foxes'?) and Ravens Rock is a bit deeper than it appears from a casual glance at the OS map. As for the gap between Ravens and Eagles, now that is deep so give yourself plenty of time (and light) if attempting all three (and back) from the Long Woman's Grave.
