Access Banned

As described in the 2010 CC guide, climbing at Symonds Yat is only permitted on the north-west facing cliffs - from The Introductory Rocks to the Final Zone inclusive.

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 30 June

Reason: Nesting Birds

Peregrine falcons have established a nest since 2019 on Strathdon, in the White Wall.  Climbers should therefore avoid all routes from Motorway Madness to Night Nurse, inclusive, during the restricted period. 

 

24m.

Rockfax Description
A popular pitch that tackles the fine corner on the right-hand side of the wall. Climb the corner to a ledge below a final section of the corner. Take this directly on well-travelled rock.

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the obvious, prominent corner.

βeta: Route ends at the large ledge and tree as the final corner runs out. Not up the final left-facing continuation crack to the very top of the crag which is harder.

βeta: Really nice route! Very polished in the crack at the top. Also did the end wall above the route which was significantly harder definitely not 4b.
