Never been there and guide suggests now would be a good time to go but that no access Nov- jan.
Does anyone know if this restriction is still in place & why? Presumably not due to nesting hawks.
Thanks

You can climb there on Sundays during the Nov - Jan period. I believe the restriction was to do with Pheasant shooting but not sure as I didn't negotiate this. The winter is a good time to climb here however as it gets full sun all afternoon (assuming its shining at all that is!). Parking can also be a bit of an issue in the narrow lane below the crag so try not to block access for farm vehicles.

I think the far right hand area (above the village) is on open access land. But the main crag isn't (the top is but not the bottom)
