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
Gritstone weirdness at its best. Climb the crack in the south face to a horizontal break then squirm along this, passing the arete precariously. Stand up (hard!) and then finish easily. © Rockfax

βeta: a remarkable amount of effort given that most of the route involves sitting or lying down; currently quite dirty, i can't imagine why!
