Restricted Access

Ownership of the combe is divided between Avon Wildlife Trust (who own the eastern section) and the charitable trust Groundworks South (who own the western section where the majority of the crags are located). The Landowner does not allow climbing on the crags. If climbers do decide to visit and are asked to leave by Groundworks staff, they should do so politely and as quickly as is safely possible.

Be aware that there are frequently loose blocks at the top of the smaller buttresses - a cautious approach is advised. As with any crag, climbing here is an activity with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions.  

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 15 February to 15 May

Reason: Nesting Birds

Ravens are nesting on Eagle Rock - the buttress should be avoided until the signs are removed.

15m. Very bold. Start right of Esgaroth, climb easily to the bulge, and place good small wires on the right. Rock up leftwards over the bulge, and press on up the slab (possible poor micro-wire) until forced rightwards by blanker rock. Good layaways lead to the tree root, which is traversed leftwards to join the finish of Esgaroth.

S Mooney 23/May/1992.
