Restricted Access

Access to this area is very sensitive with complaints to the landowner from local residents about noise, litter and fires. Whilst climbers may not be responsible for this, in order to foster good relations we would encourage anyone visiting the crag to be on best behaviour and to pick up any litter to demonstrate that climbers are responsible users of the countryside. Don't light fires, keep dogs under close control, avoid turning up in large groups, follow the current approach advice and very importantly clean chalk from holds once you've finished.

Short Sean's Reachy Roof to is the most sensitive area for local residents so please make an extra effort here to keep sessions short and quiet.

Evening and night time access isn't approriate at this crag due to the proximity of houses to the rocks - please only visit Rowtor Rocks during daylight hours.

Also please refrain from climbing on this boulder which features ancient cup and ring carvings. It's a small boulder below Domes but avoiding it will help relations with the other users of Rowtor.

 

Rockfax Description
A badly eroded problem. The main holds are much bigger than they used to be. Start in the low break, move up to a pockety seam and finally make a slap for the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Horribly eroded, crack is now a jug from some fool climbing it when wet. Nothing like the original problem and really very sad.
