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: Got this on the first attempt, very happy with that, short but strenuous. Small fingers maybe not as important as reach..

βeta: Lots of gear, and relatively comfortable to place considering the awkwardness of the route. Another great grit route at this grade although the crux felt more like 5c to me. The only problem with the route is the problem with all grit, it's too damn short.

βeta: How can a route this short get you THAT pumped? Really strenuous but excellent.
