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.

βeta: I (and the guy I was with) thought this was harder than Left Hand Pillar Crack - really awkward thrutchy climbing with poor slipping jams.

βeta: Awkward and strenuous, this slightly overgrown crack offers a bit of everything! Laybacking, finger jams, a fist jam, a hands-free and foot-free shoulders jam, a hands-free knee bar, a couple of crimps. Get stuck in!
