Following the previous climbing access and management agreement being terminated by the Dallam Estate, attempts were made to re-negotiate formal access for climbing. These were unfortunately unsuccessful and after over 40 years of access for climbing, formal access was lost.
The public can still access the area on a good network of public footpaths. If you do decide to visit and climb, you may be asked to leave by the landowner or their workers - if this happens be polite, pack up and leave as quickly as is safe to do so.
Oct 2023: there is organised shooting in the area. Please be aware that the shooting season is soon to start.
