Access Advice

The crag lies in the grounds of Sharpcliffe Hall, and the current owners are not keen on climbers. If asked to leave, please do so and report the incident to The BMC.

it is soon to be blown up with c4 soon to stop all climbers for good !

"The Planning Inspectorate have allowed the appeal the Rocks are no longer designated as open access," --- that's not really something to celebrate though. An interesting and tranquil little crag, well worth a visit for enthusiasts. Despite being on private land, it is well away from any tracks, houses, farm buildings etc (although it is in a clay pigeon shooting area - obviously to be avoided if any shooting is going on), and discreet visits are highly unlikely to have any actual detrimental effect on the hall nor it's residents. The odd dab of chalk and quiet clinking of gear pales in comparison to the vast amount of clay pigeon debris and shells that are littered around this otherwise beautiful spot....

The Planning Inspectorate have allowed the appeal the Rocks are no longer designated as open access, they are private property and climbing,walking or any access is strictly forbidden. I would be pleased if you will notify your members accordingly.

Climbing is strictly forbidden on the Rocks, they are private property and have no access from the public highway.
