Restricted Access


3 March 2023 update: Peregrines and other seabirds are either prospecting or nesting on this crag.

A temporary ban has been put in place by the National Trust covering the area of cliff between Tubby Head and Bawden Cliff, so includes all of the major route locations up to and including the America Buttress. Once the exact locations of any nests have been identified, restrictions may be lifted.

from 03/03/0023

Takes the magnificent quartz-lined groove to the right of Deceleration Lane. Start 5m right of DL at a leftward leaning slab/corner, follow this to gain the deceptively steep groove. Belay at an obvious stance on the hanging slab. Escape as for DL. N.b This route has not had a 2nd ascent-votes please!
