Restrictions apply from  15 March - 30 June. Reason - Nesting Birds

In 2013 the restrictions at Baggy Point were reviewed and with no birds nesting on the Long Rock for quite some time, the restrictions for this part of the crag have been lifted. This means that both the Long Rock and the Promontory are unrestricted, but the remaining climbing areas from Scrattling Zawn to Concrete Wall inclusive and Central Walls to Slab Cove inclusive are still restricted for the duration of the nesting season. Thanks to the National Trust for their help with this and climbers for your co-operation.

Warning: All climbers and group leaders should take great care not to knock loose rocks down the slabs onto climbers below. The cliff top areas are unstable so please tread lightly.
