Crag features

New access issues have arisen for Griffs Buttress, Black and Decker buttress and any other crags over the fence. Please DO NOT CLIMB here until the landowner has been contacted to try and arrange an access agreement. 

Please note: the BMC RAD database has not been updated since the new issues have arisen - the banner below, noting that there are no access issues, is incorrect.

Access Banned

In June 2022 signage was installed by the landowner indicating that they do not wish crags on the west side of the dale (Griff's, Black & Deckout, etc.) to be climbed on.

Negotiations to secure access have failed to reach a positive outcome. As such climbers should be aware that the owner does not permit access to west/lower Blackwell Dale. Any climber choosing to visit therfore does so against the wishes of the landowner and should politely leave without complaint if asked to do so.
