Restricted Access

The scene of the Kinder trespass in 1932 has no access problems these days. Climbers and walkers should keep dogs under control at all times to avoid disturbing moorland birds and grazing sheep. There is occasional grouse shooting on the moors above Edale and access is not permitted during these periods.

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 15 March to 30 June

Reason: Nesting Birds

A restriction is in place on Big Brother buttress and Little Brother buttress. Please avoid all routes in this section to prevent disturbance to nesting birds. 

A restriction also applies to all routes in the Ampitheatre Area of Kinder Downfall (ie from The Owl Of Minerva to The Downfall Climb) to prevent disturbance to nesting birds. 

140m. Two or three climbing pulls up the clough's very rocky bed make it as worthwhile as well known scrambles such as Wild Boar Clough on Bleaklow. Quite a lot of water coming down but do-able. Care on green bits required. Route 27 in Scrambles in the Dark Peak.
