Restricted Access

No access problems. The area is part of the Eastern Edges SSSI designated for its assemblage of breeding birds - please make sure dogs are under control to protect birds and sheep: the grazier has reported losses.

Seasonal Restrictions

Reason: Nesting Birds

Ring ouzel nest sites change quickly and frequently as they often have several broods each year with different nest sites for each brood. On site signage will be up around any of the nest sites where climbing may impact on the birds and this is always up to date and accurate.

βeta: The first half is hard and unprotected. The top is probably easy if you are tall but had one last commiting move for me to reach the jugs.

βeta: No gear, nsaty landing and awkward - I've always backed off it and it doesn't look like VS PickPocket, the slab round to the right, is a very pleasant VS 5a and worth a mention in the guide (and a star)
