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.

3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A Wallowbarrow classic up the broad rib and recessed grooves above. Start to the left of the large tree below a groove.

1) 4a, 34m. Climb the groove. Continue, passing blocks on the right (possible belay on the left), to gain the upper section of the rib. Climb this via cracks and grooves to a good belay ledge and block at the top of the rib.
2) 4a, 14m. On the right are a series of blind grooves that lead to the top. Follow the grooves with a difficult initial section to finish with a final tug on the 'John Thomas' hold. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
1. Start just left of the oak tree and go straight up the wall to a ledge with a tree on the left.
2. Straight up the wall to a big ledge with a big block on it
3. A great pitch - Move right at the back of the ledge and up a series of well-used groves with a brilliant phallic hold near the top.
