Avoid the crag after rain as the porous rock absorbs water - this causes the holds to become brittle. Top tier bouldering normally dries fastest.
Dates: 1 March to 30 June
Reason: Nesting Birds
Peregrines nest left of Clashhooks Gully, please avoid all routes on Upper & Lower Central Buttresses during this period. Raven have also been sighted around the route 'The Notch' - climbers are advised to avoid this area if the birds are in residence.
Peregrines confirmed to have nested 2022 with chicks. Avoid until at least the agreed date of 30 June and possibly longer to give chicks chance to fledge.
One of the classics of the crag, although protection could be better. From the grass ledge climb the groove to its end then step left and take the continuation to the terrace and a belay. Nice! © Rockfax
