Bamford becoming too popular!

Bamford Edge has become very popular recently and the landowner has become concerned about over-use and climbers approaching the crag from the wrong point. Both of the current guidebooks - BMC Stanage and Peak Gritstone East ROCKFAX - have the wrong access point listed and this is causing problems. Please use the higher path marked on the map on page on page 74 of PGE and not the lower one marked 'Limited Roadside Parking'.

For a full explanation of exactly what the access situation is at Bamford, check the detailed notes contained in the thread below.
