Access Banned

As described in the 2010 CC guide, climbing at Symonds Yat is only permitted on the north-west facing cliffs - from The Introductory Rocks to the Final Zone inclusive.

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 30 June

Reason: Nesting Birds

Peregrine falcons have established a nest since 2019 on Strathdon, in the White Wall.  Climbers should therefore avoid all routes from Motorway Madness to Night Nurse, inclusive, during the restricted period. 

 

15m. BravoSevenTango

The wall between Parachute (2) and The Empty Days (2).

Start 2m right of the tree of Parachute (2) and climb over the bulge and up the centre of the wall. An easier variation is possible at VS 4c (top limit of the grade) by climbing parachute for 2m and then traversing in to the right.

First ascent 20/05/22 Graham 'Sven' Hassall and Marius Smith.
