Restricted Access

Although located on land mapped as open access, climbing on this crag has been historically banned due to concerns about falling rock. Following negotiations between the BMC and the National Trust, access for climbing has now been agreed, subject to a nesting restriction to protect nesting choughs.

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 30 June

Reason: Nesting Birds

There are both sea birds and protected species nesting at this cliff and a seasonal restriction is in place from March 1st to June 30th.

Sit Start up the Arete right of Actio and make slappy rockover onto the upper slab for a tricky finish.
