Many of the routes on the steep left hand side of the crag stay clean despite little traffic.
Be wary of ticks on the approach and descent and it can get midgey so a head net is wise in the summer.
Anarchist is very vegetated with a copious amount of moss plus heather and other stuff especially in the lower pitches.
Three boulder problems added April 2022 are on the steep face of the very obvious block on the approach (Lorax, Onceler, Humming Fish), and on the downhill face of the furthest uphill of the smaller blocks round the back of it. Boulder is unaffected by seasonal restrictions.
As of June 2021, approach back to normal (as described in FRCC guide) following issues with felling in previous years.
The car park at the dam is currently closed (June 2021) by United Utilities but other parking options nearby.
Dates: 15 February to 31 May
Reason: Nesting Birds
This crag has historically been used as a nest site for both ravens and peregrines. Currently neither are beleived to be nesting but if you do see either of these birds on or near the crag displaying nesting behaviour please contact email@example.com
|The whole face can be abseiled in 50m ropes. From the top lowert down to the tree on the right (facing in). This is about 35m. From the tree (tat and maillon) abseil down the the grassy slope of the approach (about 30+m).
