Climbing at Chudleigh Rock is an inherently dangerous activity and climbers should be aware of the risk of personal injury and death. The landowner (The Clifford Estate), is very supportive of climbing at the crag, but requires that all climbers using the crag have 3rd party liability insurance cover up to £10 million. This is an integral part of BMC or MCofS membership or can be obtained elsewhere providing it gives the same level of cover.
Fixed equipment on the crag has not been installed by the Clifford Estate Company Ltd and is not the responsibility of The Clifford Estate Company Ltd. Please be aware that the fixed equipment is not checked or maintained by the Clifford Estate Company Ltd and the Clifford Estate Company Ltd accepts no liability for the death or injury of any person involved in climbing arising from fixed equipment failure.
Do not light fires - in the past this has caused damage to plants and the local bat colony, and could gain climbers a poor reputation if it happens in future.
Dates: 4 April to 30 June
Reason: Nesting BirdsA nesting owl has been reported near Stalactite Direct - avoid this and nearby routes until the young birds have fledged (likely to be in mid-late June).
Reasonably-protected wall climbing linking some subtle features on the face right of Inkerman Groove. Start as for Machete Wall.
Follow Machete Wall until below the short white corner. Move up left to a ring peg and then up to a horizontal break. Take the shallow, left-trending groove, peg, to another peg at its end and make difficult moves left onto the edge of Inkerman Groove at an ivy patch. Move right, thread, and up to meet the top of a thin crack on the right, thread. Easier climbing gains the finish of Inkerman Groove. © Rockfax
