Reason: Nesting Birds

2023 26th February update: The Ravens do not appear to be using the existing nest in Gardoms Unconquerable - however one more check will be made in case they are late starting, so please be observant and report any sightings if you are in the area.

In recent years a Tawny Owl has nested in the Layback Crack/Flake Crack.area - it is not known if they are present in 2023 but please keep your eyes and ears out if climbing in this area.

 

Rockfax Description
The wide crack in the buttress leads to a good ledge below the summit, passing the jutting flake. The crack of Giant's Staircase can be used to reach the summit, at a higher grade. © Rockfax
