Dates: 15 February to 31 May
Reason: Nesting Birds
2023 26th February update: The Ravens do not appear to be using the existing nest in Gardoms Unconquerable - however one more check will be made in case they are late starting, so please be observant and report any sightings if you are in the area.
In recent years a Tawny Owl has nested in the Layback Crack/Flake Crack.area - it is not known if they are present in 2023 but please keep your eyes and ears out if climbing in this area.
The long slanting crack is stormed on solid jams and jugs (once aided on wood wedges) to its end and a swinging escape right. A great pitch, worth seeking out. © Rockfax
