Bacon Hole is an internationally important conservation site, both for its geology, its archaeology and for the fauna (protected bats and choughs) found in the area. It's a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and the features of the site (including roosting and hibernating bats) are protected by law. For this reason the owners, the National Trust and Government of Wales's conservation advisors, the Natural Resource for Wales have not previously allowed climbing at this venue. Following detailed negotiations permisson has been obtained for bouldering on a very limited section of the left hand wall. It's imperative that the agreement is adhered to.
Dates: 1 March to 14 August
Reason: Nesting Birds
The cliff is also within the agreed seasonal restriction to protect nesting choughs. This restriction extends from Bosco's Cave to Quartz Corner.
