Restricted Access

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 February to 31 May

Reason: Nesting Birds

The restriction applies to the whole crag for nesting ravens. This site is regularly monitored and fledging often occurs here by early May so the restriction may be lifted earlier than the date mentioned above. Keep checking this page for updates.

2024 UPDATE: No ravens activity this year by mid April, as such the restriction has been lifted early - from 16th April.



Rockfax Description
Impressive climbing passing through some steep ground. From the left gain cracks and climb to the bulge. Make some powerful moves up left over the bulge onto the wall above and then climb the wall and slim corner to a ledge. Finish via the overhang on its right. An alternative finish is Caricature 7a - that steps left after the crux of Burlesque and crosses the crux wall of Summertime (and the Weather is Lousy) to good holds on Mr Shifter. Finish as for Mr Shifter. © Rockfax
