Went here today and there is a big sign saying No Public Access, including equestrian, climbing, walking, motorbikes and vehicles. Went to have a look at the crag and a man in hi-vis orange overalls was wandering around. I assume it is well monitored!

Good climbing and gear on the routes on the left. The rock is clean but the alder bushes at the bottom will need cutting down before long as they'll start to spoil the routes.
