New access arrangements are currently under trial between the landowners and the BMC. Currently access can only be gained with written permission of the landowner, Patrick Walker via firstname.lastname@example.org'. Mr Walker owns the farm land and buildings below the left hand side of the cliff and the left wing of the crag. Other landowners own the various parcels of land below Central Wall and the Right Wing and the majority of the cliff face and are happy for climbing to continue but so far, the only agreed access route from the road is via Mr Walker's Land.
Peregrine habitually, and Raven occasionally, nest on this cliff and are generally more sensitive to disturbance here than at other sites such as Malham Cove.
The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) is the representative body that exists
to protect the freedoms and promote the interests of climbers, hill walkers and
mountaineers, including ski-mountaineers. The BMC recognises that climbing, hill
walking and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death.
Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be
responsible for their own actions.
