Restricted Access

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. 

July 2020 update - The peregrines have left the nest on Strathdon - restriction lifted

Not as hard as it looks!

βeta: Took big Camalot #5 up but it wasn't actually any help. All you need is a #4 Friend to bump (or 2, if you're flush), a sling for a chockstone and the biggest hex for near the top.
