Restricted Access

The land agents have expressed concern about the increased use, erosion, and disturbance to heather below the crag. Access is therefore best by following the wall up to the RH end and contouring directly below the crag.

See parking advice.

Seasonal Restrictions

Reason: Nesting Birds

The landowner has been granted a dog restriction on the Open Access land at Jervaulx Moor for grouse breeding. This runs until 27/05/2015 and includes Slipstones and Brown Beck Crags.


Rockfax Description
From a sitting start, undercut the overlap and heave off a shoddy sloper. Sidling left into Sidewinder is only f7C! © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The obvious eliminate between stipule and sidewinder. SS both hands in the undercling, head straight up via sidepulls to get the sloper with LH only, then pull straight through to the top (no RH on or near the sloper) 7C as a non eliminate but v close and similar to sidewinder.
