Restricted Access

Ownership of the combe is divided between Avon Wildlife Trust (who own the eastern section) and the charitable trust Groundworks South (who own the western section where the majority of the crags are located). The Landowner does not allow climbing on the crags. If climbers do decide to visit and are asked to leave by Groundworks staff, they should do so politely and as quickly as is safely possible.

Be aware that there are frequently loose blocks at the top of the smaller buttresses - a cautious approach is advised. As with any crag, climbing here is an activity with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions.  

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 15 February to 15 May

Reason: Nesting Birds

Ravens are nesting on Eagle Rock - the buttress should be avoided until the signs are removed.

βeta: The top wall is pretty loose and the holds are coming out. If you back out below that, then the half way tree is also suspect

βeta: The main abseil rock is very unstable in its upper half and won't last to much longer to be honest. Ensure the fixed abseil rope in seated at the bottom of the abseil rock, make your own informed judgement as to wether you wish to use the abseil station.

βeta: Beware of wobbly rocks and loose stuff high up. Pull with care and watch where you stand.

βeta: Nice route on clean rock. Some loose rock towards the top, mostly jammed in place so OK for foot / hand holds and not too much to worry about. Good belay at top and some abseil tat in place.
