What is the general consensus for climbing on chalk cliffs around the Yorkshire coast, like Bempton etc.
It a SSSI isn't it? Would this mean that tooling it would be out of the question?
I haven't done it yet. I just thought I'd guage the reaction on here before hand.
Also the North East England guide says the Cock 'N Hen Hole cliffs of Filey brig aren't really suitable for rock climbing. What would people think to this getting tooled?

In reply to naffan: have a search on here for bempton cliffs. People have climbed on them, not that much like. Pretty mental and massive and birdy was the conclusion I think. I'm keen to get down there at some point.

In reply to Al Evans: Yeah its the same as what the NEE guide says
"Cock N Hen Hole Cliffs

These are all unclimbed. The mud slope comes right up to the cliff edge and slumps regularly after wet weather, making the area unsuitable for climbing."
