Chee Dale Lower refers to the crags in Chee Dale which are generally approach from Milldale. These are the Cornice, Rhubarb Buttress and Chee Tor.
The revised access routes are:
Cheedale is a SSSI and cSAC with a high level of legal protection under European law. Access for climbing is concessionary and can only be maintained if climber's continue to adhere to a number of conditions These include, - No access along the top of the dale beyond a corner formed by the wall and obvious new fence bounding the 3rd major gully east of Plum Buttress. Therefore, no access to Runyans Corner and Moving, Long, or Two-Tier Buttresses from the dale top. - No further bolted development on the small, vegetated, and obscure crags, which rim the dale - most of these are of negligible climbing quality. - Do not leave in situ crabs or tape on bolt hangars. - Parts of Nettle Buttress, Chee Tor East, and Dogs Dinner area are bolt free areas of outstanding appearance. - Do not remove large swathes of ivy.
|The path back from the 'proper footbridge' is now very overgrown (with nettles!) Better to use the fallen tree.|
