Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.
At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.
We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

Located on Marine Drive, roughly 1km along the road from Parisella's Cave.
There is a topo in the North Wales Bouldering guide, by S Panton. For more up-to-date problem listings use the search function on http://www.northwalesbouldering.com
There are currently no access issues and there is parking alongside the Pill Box Wall (although you can walk up in no time from the cave, where there are more spaces).
Due to suspect rock and the proximity of the public road, climbing is only permitted on routes which are between the green painted marker posts and have fixed lower-offs. Routes and areas of cliff between the red painted posts are banned due to instable rock and the risk of falling rock injuring passers-by. All routes finish at BMC installed and maintained lower-offs - and on no account should climbers continue beyond these to the top of the crag due to the increased risk of falling rock and to protect rare and protected plant species.
Climbing is only allowed after 6pm on the routes above the Marine Drive during Bank Holiday weekends and during the school summer holiday July 8th until Sept 15th,
Dates: 26 March to 18 June
Reason: Nesting Birds
Thanks all - the choughs have successfully fledged three young chicks and the restrctions has been lifted on June 18th
New Seasonal Climbing Restriction Mayfair Wall March 2018 until June 30th

It is a criminal offence to disturb nesting Choughs. The restriction will be lifted immediately when the birds fledge or if the nest fails. Signs are in place at the base of the cliff.
In addition in most years , Kesterels nest on the route Norman's Wisdom in the Testament Area. Please do not climb that route or the two routes either side until the birds have fledged, which should be the end of June.
