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.

The leaning and juggy wall to the right of the crack leads steeply to a grovelling mantelshelf exit on jams under a conveniently-placed block, or a crumbling little edge. © Rockfax

βeta: If people find this easier than LWD they must be avoiding the technical direct start by easier moves on the right...this is VS 4c.

βeta: Not that hard to start, definitely easier than LWD, but the top is tricky. I think VS 4c is about right.
