There have been serious problems here in the past but access is now less problematic providing climbers keep a low profile. The quarries are owned by Gwynedd Council who offically do not allow access due to public safety reasons - there are high fences and signs prohibiting access, but there have not been any reports of access problems for many years.
Some routes (Bone People area) are restricted due to nesting birds from March 1st until the end of June.
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.
