Restricted Access

The crag is not mapped as open country under CRoW, something that may surprise anyone who has climbed there. It is, however, in the ownership of the National Trust and access made available by the trust. BMC is taking up the CRoW mapping issue with Natural England. Please be aware peregrine have nested at the crag. If you observe them during the Spring months, please do not disturb them during this sensitive period - give the nest site a wide berth.

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 30 September

Reason: Nesting Birds

Peregrine nest found next to Sausage Juice on 18/5/2024.

Best advice is to avoid crag. Certainly avoid the specified routes, and those around them. But if you are there look out for behaviour including:

  • Birds flying in front of the crag repeatedly with persistent calling
  • Any aggressive behaviour
  • Repeated bird activity in the same area

If this behaviour is observed, please withdraw as quickly as possible to avoid the chicks or eggs becoming chilled causing them to perish.

It is a criminal offense to intentionally or recklessly kill, injure or take a Peregrine.

Rockfax Description
22m. An interesting trip up the left-hand side of the narrow buttress. Climb a short steep crack on the left (making the route VDiff) or, better, the steep groove in the front of the buttress. From the ledge continue up a series of grooves trending left until the easier rocks lead rightwards to the top. © Rockfax
