βeta: There was a bird's nest in the crack, with several eggs and a bird flew out and away (not tawny owl) as I was climbing. Only read the feedback on 24/05/22 after I'd already climbed the route. So sorry! Have since contacted BMC and their advice is to avoid the route and others nearby it for now - for the month of June.

βeta: Bird nesting with eggs just above initial hard move, probably better to avoid until they've gone? 21/05/2022
