UKC

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. 

 

Rockfax Description
The twin corner cracks give a good workout that can be well-protected with large gear.
1) 4c, 22m. The tapering crack and single crack above give sustained bridging and jamming. Belay on a ledge above.
2) 8m. Finish up the groove on the right. © Rockfax
