Restricted Access

Abseil from the top of Brazen Butress. 

This crag is not in the MoD range. There are some bird nests in the Chimney area ( behind Brazen Buttress) but climbing is unrestricted at present as long as climbers minimise disturbance - i.e. don't hang around any longer than necessary where birds are flying in and out of the area.  Bird nesting can vary a lot here from year to year - please do a visual check before starting your route, particularly around 'The Cracks' to 'Star Gate' area.  A sign will be placed above Brazen Buttress if there is a seasonal restriction in place and this website will be updated.

Seasonal Restrictions

Rockfax Description
An eliminate that takes the easiest line up the wall by connecting three other routes. Start up Wraith but take a rising diagonal line of cracks all the way across the wall to The Strait Gate. Follow this for a few moves to a diagonal crack which leads back right to the finishing cracks of Talk's Cheap. © Rockfax
