Restricted Access

This whole area is popular with the general public due to its folly, viewpoints etc. The National Trust has concerns over the state of the rock and dangers to the public. Do not climb on The Old Man (it continues to shed rock and lean with increasing angle each year). In addition, the area also contains a few disused quarries inc; Millstone Quarry is not NT land and ownership is uncertain. If you climb here be sensitive to the privacy of the people in the bungalows to the north.

20m. Start at the far left (closest to the fence facing the front) ascend up the arete slowly making your way around to the front of the face and up through the grove (very run out in the first 5m) then traverse leftwards along to the shoulder where a spike is. Work your way up the left shoulder and then across to spiral route then head straight upwards in the groove to the top.
