/ Crookrise / Slipstones dog ban?
Birds nesting at crookrise so be careful up there. Official line is no dogs at all.
Isn't there a dog ban everywhere now?
Still allowed on public rights of way.
Not suggesting there are. Addressing the "all dogs banned" post. There's a small print on the signs.
I thought i read somewhere that dogs are to be totally banned from crags footpaths etc, but maybe it was just a dream.
Well I guess there could be exceptions. The signs up around the Peak, the Dales and the Lakes all have "no dog" signs but when you read the small print they state: "on a lead and on public rights of way".

Ah - gotcha.
Crookrise has a permanent dog ban as far as I can remember, due to sensitive flora and forna in the area.
Crrokrise is interesting as it is the access route to the crag that is on the Barden estate. The crag itself - on t'other side of the wall - isn't, as far as I know. Although the boundary of CRoW land conventeintly jumps the wall and includes the crag!
I've never heard of a dog ban there although it is possible for grouse estates to apply for them and there is no public right of way to the crag although it falls within access land
Cheers for the info guys. We went to Earl Crag and then Ilkley. Only saw 6 other climbers all day.
Earl Crag, Paul? It must have been warm and dry then!
Guess everybody has gone away for the weekend.....
I have also been reliably informed that dogs ARE a no-no at Crookrise.
(Unless they are retrieving downed grouse presumably...)
> Earl Crag, Paul? It must have been warm and dry then!
Yes it was. Earl was a little green in places, Looking at the amount of chalk there, its be dry for a while.
Of course it has - it hasn't rained for about 3 weeks! :-)
