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

2024 Update - Both Peregrines and Ravens have been observed at the crag. It's not certain yet whether they are nesting. Restrictions will remain in place for now.

 

37m.

Rockfax Description
An equally fine companion to the neighbouring Silver Buttons. Start up Silver Buttons and move right onto the face just above a grassy ledge at 11m. Follow the bolt-line up the wall to a sustained section before the top. An 80m rope is required to reach the ground otherwise split at the lower-off on Silver Buttons. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start as for "Silver Buttons" trending right to a parallel line of bolts to the right of that route

βeta: The lower off bolts, had only 1 in situ / sacrificial snapgate for lowering off, but use this with rope through lower bolt to save wear on the bolts. Preferably needs a pair of insitu screwgates or fat maillons. To go to the higher belay if wanting to do Moonwalk, is quite sketchy with no bolts for 5m, some grassy ledges too.
