There are no major access issues for individual climbers but dogs should be kept under control. Please park considerately (not in the driveway of the nearby house) and keep noise to a minimum. Only use public footpaths to access Gib Torr and Baldstones. In recent years significant damage has been caused to these boulders by wire brushing and hold sculpting. DO NOT DO EITHER. Climb the rock as it is or train harder until you can.

Please be aware of a recent burial near the boulders and exercise respect around the immediate area.
