Restricted Access

Permission is no longer required to climb here. However, access still relies on a permissive agreement for passage through the grazing land. Please use the stiles and ensure all gates are closed.

There is a permanent dog ban in place under CRoW at the crag and the surrounding land.

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 20 April to 20 June

Reason: Nesting Birds

Kestrels regularly nest on Eastby Buttress - if the birds are present avoid routes on this buttress until the young have fledged (usually by the end of June).

20m.

Rockfax Description
20m. The cracks in the right-hand flank of the buttress give one of the best VDiffs on grit. Climb the groove until the cracks can be reached. They are then followed throughout, with good gear and some fine but easy jamming. © Rockfax
