Climbers should note that fishing and shooting syndicates pay for the use of the area - please do not antagonise any of these groups.
A blue rope was put up across the path on the right side of the lake leading to the line of buttresses from Kloof Crag to Tin Pan Alley in 2011. The official footpath goes down the left side of the lake and it was thought that the rope was simply an indicator to ramblers to 'keep left' rather than a formal barrier to climbing on the Eavestone side. Several recent visits in 2012/13 have met with no opposition and the rope disapeared during 2013 when the substantial tree to which it was tied blew down. No formal access agreement has ever been reached here but climbers have rarely been challenged in the past.
Not really suitable.
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.
