Reason: Nesting BirdsThe restriction is unsigned and applies to all routes on Right Wall (Peregrine Way to Prudence). The remaining routes including the popular scramble and descent are unrestricted.
|The situation is magnificent, the rock wonderful, but there are few good lines on this crag, and these are often broken up by lengthy scrambles and abundant vegetation. |
