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. 

 

37m.

Rockfax Description
Tremendous atmosphere and positions. Start as for Whitt. Follow Whitt to the wire thread and then to below the overhung arete. Traverse right and reach a ledge. Move up and left on to the wall close to the arete and work up the exposed wall to ledges and the summit of the pinnacle.
Descent - Abseil down to the col from a good spike of rock. © Rockfax

βeta: No pegs visible where mentioned in the guide. Basically climb to the cable strop, go up and round it on its left and then horizontally rightward for 2m around the arête just under the bulge and over the strop. Then up and left completely onto the arête again to finish.
