Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 15 February to 31 May

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.

 

11m.

Rockfax Description
Better that it looks and with tricky moves at the nose - harder for the short who will struggle to reach past the crux. Only HS but harder than Apple Arete - which is a bit odd! © Rockfax

FA. Rupert Brooks 1934.
