Access Banned

USER ATTENTION from 09/08/2023

There has been a big rock fall. Inspections are taking place and the entire crag is banned until the work is finished. 


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. 

18m. At the New Orleans Buttress there is a large square cut cave bounded by 'Plop' on the left and 'Mississippi' on the right. 'Slimy Plop', starts at chest height, one metre in from the back left corner of the cave: Climb a line of pockets and layaways to the centre of the cave, from here go up to follow a hand traverse until it blanks out. Use the undercut pocket below to transfer into the corner of 'Big Plop'. Climb this route to the top (in the right corner at the back of the cave: Climb the corner to the roof, then out right to thing vertical crack. Follow the crack to top out staying left of the tree and avoiding the arĂȘte. Large but suspect protection in the top half of the crack).
