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.

Rockfax Description
Climb Knight's Move to the break above the roof, follow this all the way to the arete passing a sapling, to an easy finish. A better finish is up the shallow crack above the sapling at HVS 5a. © Rockfax

βeta: We all know knights move is soft for HVS but this route implies the HVS and 5A move are above the flake which is no harder than HS 4B if that. This and knights are just VS 4C smashing variation though

βeta: I think that this climb is a very good VS 4c, i finished the traverse at the small tree and then climbed diagnally right to finish at the top of Great Crack which i thought was harder than a 4c move.

βeta: I agree... if Knight's Move is H.V.S then this should be too, infact in my opinion Knight's Move is V.S. although i'd give this H.V.S.

βeta: If The Knights Move is HVS then this must be too. The traverse is easier than it looks. There was no dirt when I did it earlier this year but the tree does hinder the ropework a little.

βeta: The end of the traverse was very dirty. Obviously doesn't get climbed much. Worthwile though. The last moves up past the tree were relatively frightening due to the dirt.
