In complete disbelief I saw someone do this a couple of months back to save their feet from getting muddy!! It was also witness again today.
This is a sure fire way to piss the landowner off and could lead to further access issues.

Always walk on the top of walls, it keeps you from growing old.

Did you intend to include more context?

What more is there to say. Folk with bouldering mats have been seen, on more than one occasion, walking along (not over) the wall top to access a prominent crag that has already had recent access restrictions put in place by the landowner. If the landowner sees or reads about this they are, quite rightly, going to be even more pissed off with the climbing community.

Maybe give us a clue as to the location, so when we sneak in we can be more covert and not walk along the top off the wall!

I'm guessing it might be a wall somewhere near Haworth. Is there a Dales equivalent of the famous BMC Peak Area cryptic quiz? (Perhaps this is it)

I wonder why I have been deliberately criptic- maybe it's something to do with the recent access restrictions and the fact that a landowner can read. So if you have no clue to what I'm on about then just walk along the path and everything should be fine.

Good general advice really.

Hard to believe. Which one?

Hadrian's Wall?

Will do ... but which path is it again?

The only place I can think of is in lower Swaledale. A public footpath runs on top of a wall next to the R.Swale and is part of the C to C. The only climbing I saw though were some small boulder problems in the river bed.

Could be
The Great Wall of China
OR
The Berlin Wall
OR
Mexico - US border (Trump's wall)

I don’t suppose the Romans would be too upset though. Wonder what their bouldering was like.

Top tip: don’t wear your climbing shoes when walking to the crag

Their bouldering was only as good as their sandals allowed, however their spotting was amazing, an entire legion would hold bouldering pads together to form a tortoise, giving a padded landing zone some 10m wide by 20m deep.

and your point is?

I saw someone walking the wall on saturday. Doesn't look like an isolated case. We'll only have ourselves to blame if climbing is banned at Almscliff - that's where all this is going on. Just so everyone knows.

In reply to Andy Kassyk:

Wouldn't surprise me if the farmer starts putting his cattle back in the crag field like before to discourage climbing. You'll remember the absolute quagmire it was with shit and piss under everything.
