Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 30 June

Reason: Nesting Birds

Kestrels nest on the crag but no formal restriction is in place as they are not Schedule 1 (legally protected) or locally rare birds. If they are in residence on the crag, please climb past their nest site as quickly as possible taking care not to cause any damage and limit disturbance.

Rockfax Description
Enticing climbing up the clean wall in the centre of the buttress. Start at some stacked blocks that lean against the crag base.
1) 4b, 42m. From the blocks, move up the left-hand side of the face passing the slim overlap a couple of metres left of a narrow right-facing corner (this feature is just above the overlap). Continue more easily to a huge tree then up to a belay below a sheer face behind it. Abseil descent possible from here.
2) 4b, 23m. Take the finger-crack to a narrow flake ledge and then head up the wall to a belay on the higher of a couple of grassy ledges. © Rockfax

βeta: 3 star route, well-protected MVS 4b. Not sure why it seems to have lost a star in new guide. Second pitch is worth doing, but I also installed some nice chunky ab tat today, 7 March 2024 (orange/red 9.5mm climbing rope). Forgot a knife, so old tat still there - do take a knife and remove.

βeta: Digitation et al are the first routes you arrive at when walking from West Crag. Nameless Route and others are away to the left hidden in the trees, above the path take from West Crag...it's a touch confusing on first visit!

βeta: Fantastic first pitch. The second pitch is still worthwhile doing, only the start is a polished bouldering move
