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: I reckon font 6b for just the seam either side(just got back from font!) Certainly nowhere close to british tech 6c. Good stuff all the same though.

βeta: V5? 6c? Nah. Right-hand slab (again, no arete) goes at V3/4, left hand slab goes at V4. Only starting down left and finishing up right, i.e. diagonally traversing the seam, is vaguely near V4/5, and is hard 6b at most. Probably best to do it on a cool, dry October day before is starts going green.

βeta: Using the seam right-wards is definitely a very nice 6b. Using the left slab with the seam, however, is far more taxing, but ultimately just as enjoyable. I spent half a day playing with all the different ways up it - but don't consider any of the lines E1...
