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.

Rockfax Description
One of the best sport climbs on the cliff. Climb a scoop and wall to the horizontal break and continue on small holds to a gain improving holds. Move left to finish on jugs. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Fine technical climbing starting at the obvious scoop to the right of Lightweights Wall. Pull into the scoop and gain the wall above by a deceptively tricky move. Climb up to the break. Thin moves lead straight up then slightly to the right until better holds are gained. Step left to reach mega buckets. Follow these to a lower of shared with Fighting Chance.
