Restricted Access

Night firing normally occurs on Tues & Thurs but can alternate to Mon & Wed.

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 1 August

Reason: Nesting Birds

The climbs between Hororscope and Galactic Coordinator inlusive can only be reached by abseil during 1st March to 1st August (don't scramble in from the west as this approach encroaches on the restriction to the west).There is also a nesting season restriction (1st Mar - 1st Aug) covering Star Control to Rabbit Ripper inlcuding all 3 girdle traverses. This includes Deep Throat. 


Rockfax Description
The first wacky traverse that doesn't really go anywhere, but is so exposed that you can't fail to enjoy it. Start on the high belay ledge as for Pigs on the Wing. Follow Galactic Co-ordinator to the higher break on the arete and continue traversing along a break, under a small roof. Follow this to the crack of Deep Throat and finish up this. © Rockfax
