Restricted Access

Langcliffe is regularly patrolled by YDNPA wardens and conservation volunteers. The quarry area is also designated as a Scheduled Monument under the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979 and English Heritage consider that any further drilling to place bolts may constitute a criminal offence unless consent is gained via them from the Secretary of State.

Skyline Buttress is in private ownership and no formal access agreement is in place. Negotiations have failed to resolve the issue with the landowner of this buttress, who has occasionally asked climbers to leave. 

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 31 July

Reason: Nesting Birds

Climbing is temporarily restricted between 1st March and until the end of July 2023 on all routes including the skyline buttress.
