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: Original description of The Watch Tower VD "40yards right of the top of Turret Chimney (same place as Mark's Roof) is a large boulder mounted above a steep face. Start on the west facing wall and with the use of a thin crack mantelshelf onto a comfortable ledge. Take the bulge above just right of the corner." The only route which seems to match this description is Soft Groove!
