Plenty of climbing in a superb location.

Approach notes

PARKING - IMPORTANT

The locals are very friendly and reasonable and are happy for people to park here but they are concerned about their own access. Please take great care not to block any gates or access for local residents. If there is no room to park then please park a little further away and walk in.

KITCHEN AT REIFF - Sara Nason is now running a small kitchen here and welcomes climbers for soup and bread lunches, teas and suppers which may help supply a much needed sustenance after a climb or walk.

Tidal

You must park with consideration for the local houses, as this is a local concern and we don't want to lose access, please! (Jon Read)
