Restricted Access

These crags do not have agreed access. The landowner has concerns with climbing on his land, and any publicity about the crags, or an increase in use, will result in an immediate and enforced ban. Quiet, low-key use is currently tolerated - please do not do anything to jeopardise this. Be sensitive to the ecological features of the area and take all litter home with you.

 

Rockfax Description
The hanging rib has just enough slopey pockets to provide an absolutely classic problem, and one of the best at this grade on limestone. The crux for most is committing to standing up using a roof pocket to gain the top lip. Airy. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Classic english 6b problem up the pocketed rib and over the roof at the right end of Gypsy buttress.
