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: No WAY is the crux the unprotected start Si, it's a DIFF that start (and you could protect it if you did some gardening). You do need a bit of confidence in your layback skills (gear) or beta ("one move wonder") to do the layback move. Sue

βeta: realitively easy start, good gear, use a number 2 friend under the layback move then go for the top, exciting route would be worth 3 starts if three times longer. If your flexible its 4a.

βeta: A very nice move, intimating but easy, the crux is the unprotected start. S 4a for the layback flake, maybe S 4b overall.
