ACCESS BANNED, DO NOT VISIT THE CRAG UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
An abundance of rock, forming a few buttresses hidden in the trees and a playground of boulders both in and out of the woods.
The woods hide a number of trad gems, well worth seeking out by those in need of adventure, and the boulders offer a large circuit which should please any visitor, with excellent problems up to font 7c.
A report was received on 26th Mar 2018 that a climber preparing to approach the crag from the road was challenged by a game keeper and told that climbing was not permitted on the crag. Subsequently, information received via the NYMNP Ranger confirmed that the Head Keeper does NOT want climbing on this crag, wishing it to be available as a bird "reserve". The main crag is not on Open Access land so there is no automatic right to climb on it.. As the more significant Danby Crag is on the same estate and currently enjoys seasonally restricted access, climbers are requested to abide by the restriction on Clemitts until further notice. Negotiations to reinstate climbing are ongoing.
Reason: Nesting Birds
