Concerns have been raised by local residents about climbers using the areas adjacent to the crag as a toilet. Please remember that the crag is visited by a wide variety of recreational users (of all ages) apart from climbers and be considerate to them. If at all possible, avoid using these areas as a toilet – ideally go before you leave the house in the morning or there is a public toilet in Easton. However, as we all know you can sometimes get caught out. If you do, please either pack out or shallow bury (to cover it but still allow decomposition in the active topsoil) any solid waste.
