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
The last of the classic Gardom's E3s is a bold arete climb which is often green. Start on the right and climb to a break where runners protect the moves up and left to easier ground. Oddly the route doesn't climb much like an arete. © Rockfax

βeta: agree with fiend in that I don't recall a single 'arete move' really. I found this quite demanding for E3. Was worried about the pedastal/block that meets the butress at the bottom on the right as the line seemed to push you right after completion of the crux. you'd need a quick belayer if you came off here i reckon.
