Access notes
Access info from the Regional Access Database:

The landowners have expressed legitimate safety concerns with climbing in the gorge. The site contains a popular public road and and the potential for passers-by to be hit by falling/dislodged rock is obvious.

If you wish to climb or scramble in the pass, BMC advice is to limit visits to either very early or late in the day, midweek.

The pass is a SSSI, mainly for geological reasons but also because of the Bryophytes (mosses) and various other plants on the south side. Road Closed Ridge and Pinnacle Gully start up one of the best patches of this so it's a good idea to avoid these routes unless they are well covered and well frozen.

The 2 pics of "Winnats Pass Route" are of different routes, the "route from above" one is Matterhorn Ridge, the other is the ridge on the other side of the Pass at its entrance. The route description as written makes no sense, but if you swap South for North and East for West (and West for East in the Photo description for the lower pic) it all falls into place, the description & grade are about right and this is the ridge in the first pic. I suggest the guy who wrote it up originally didn't have a map!
