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. 

10m.

βeta: Plenty of jamming severes around, even some V Diffs (Dogleg Crack, Curbar; Mars, stanage). This isn't one though. S 4b is about right

βeta: Found it a little difficult at mid section and thought a little hard for the grade.

βeta: Did this as my first severe after leading a number of VD/HVD in the last year, I would agree with the severe grade and the pro I got in seemed bomber (hopefully!)

βeta: Interesting route, the crux section is possibly best approached as though you are trying to pull open lift doors, which is enough to be able to get your feet up, and once through that, you are in the clear... Possibly a touch hard for a Severe, but possibly only 'cos the moves are a bit strange, but the top section is lovely...
