Restricted Access

The crag lies on private land with no public right of access beyond the approach path, which is a public right of way. 

Access is permitted only if the following conditions are met - it's is imperative that all climbers using the site adhere to these conditions :-

• Climbers must ask permission to climb, please pop into the farm and ask every time before climbing

• Large groups are not permitted.  Park considerately, not blocking gates or access tracks. Keep noise to a minimum, (No music, bluetooth speakers or ghetto blasters!)

  • Do not drop litter and please pick up any that you may see there. 

• Dogs to be strictly on leads at all times  -some groups have turned up with dogs off lead when there are sheep, lambs and cows in the fields.

• Lack of activity during lockdown has led to an increase in vegetation on the crag and top outs. Some of this has been cleared without the landowner's blessing and was cleared during a time when farmers are not allowed to clear vegetation (nesting). Please ask at farmhouse if it ok to clear vegetation.



Rockfax Description
A finger-sized crack splitting the highest section of the main wall epitomises limestone crack climbing at its best - well protected, technical, awkward and slightly polished, but thoroughly entertaining! At the upper overhang, move right and then pull up using small holds to reach the top. © Rockfax
