Restricted Access

Currently access can only be gained with permission of the landowner, Patrick Walker via email. Mr Walker owns the farm land and buildings below the left hand side of the cliff and the left wing of the crag. Other landowners own the various parcels of land below Central Wall and the Right Wing and the majority of the cliff face and are happy for climbing to continue but so far, the only agreed access route from the road is via Mr Walker's Land.

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 February to 31 July

Reason: Nesting Birds

The restriction applies to the whole crag for both peregrine and raven. The birds on this cliff are more sensitive to disturbance than at other sites such as Malham Cove.

22m.

Rockfax Description
Balancy and technical climbing on superb rock (when clean). Difficult moves lead to the first break and a thread. Head up the wall (peg) and continue to the finish of Unreal and its tree belay. © Rockfax

βeta: There is gear between the break and peg which is okish but not bomb-proof. The description is obviously wrong i.e. at start climb past theard to break.

βeta: Why does this get the flutter symbol? It is decently protected.
