Chee Dale Lower

Climbs 257 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces all

Crag features
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.

Access notes
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.
