Restricted Access


The crag is in Range West, an Army live-firing range. Briefed climbers (with a valid permit) can access the crag year round when the range is not firing (all weekends &  Bank Holidays plus occasional week days). Briefings now last from date of briefing to following Easter.  Night firing normally occurs on Tuesday & Thursday but may also alternate to Monday & Wednesday.

When approaching from Gupton Gate in teh nesting season (March to July), Please note there is a restricted area on the middle section of Frainslake Beach due to nesting Ring Plovers - please stay on top of the dunes, or at low tide, low down on the beach when passing this area.

Thank you!
