Unfortunately the Ravens nest has fallen from it's ledge, probably due to heavy rain. There seems no sign of them atempting to rebuild it. The climbing restrictions should probably be lifted? Any thoughts?

Twitchers told me that the Perigrines haven't nested here for a few years though there is a raven nest on the Belk at mo

Follow the path to the big Wallace monument and cross the Irvine by the bridge. No more stepping stones.

Pulpit Crack is a fine climb ***, but the Edge really is amazing, I haven't seen anything in the UK like it, so yes, I agreee with Kinley.

Err, it's good but if you think they are two of the best VS's in the UK then you need to travel a bit more!

Massively underrated crag. Two of the best VS in the UK (Pulpit crack and The Flake), great views, superb location and a good pub.

Some nice mid grade climbs, perfect for a lazy summer afternoon. Foxglove chimney and strife are both particular favourites.

The bird loving cop from Strathaven is an ex-Royal Marine Commando, and Strathclyde Police MRT member, as well as a really nice guy,- so I'd do as he say's if I were you! :-)

Beware of a bird loving cop from Strathaven, who will try and keep you off the hill, whether walking or climbing.
According to the MCofS, only a few routes to the sides of the nest should not be climbed on, other than this there is nothing to stop you climbing there.

At the moment [June 02] a pair of peregrine falcons are nesting on one of the faces of the crag with young chicks. There are also a large amount of \"twitchers\" in the car park with telescopes etc who will try their utmost to discourage you from climbing on that wall. There are plenty of routes still available
