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.

Rockfax Description
Start on the left and climb the 'coffin' crack to a chockstone, then move right and climb the wall (a bit bold) to a possible stance. Climb to the roof then traverse round the arete rightwards to slopers and a short finishing crack. © Rockfax

βeta: I guess the crux is the boldness required to lean out over a very suddenly exposed wall and reach up and out. I also wondered about protection for that move but it is there.
