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: If you can reach the lip holds with left hand whilst on the back - campus the match and then campus up to the jug. Makes padding the landing easy on one pad and no spotter needed. Also .... less high heels. Not sure if it’s easier this way though...

βeta: Don't be fooled by the lack of stars, it's an awesome problem.

βeta: Certainly not a desperate roof, felt a little bit worrying getting my feet on the lip but the hardest part is getting your hands on the lip without swinging off backwards.
