Restrictions apply from
June. Reason -
Update June 25th 2015 - the restrictions have been lifted early as the birds have succesfully fledged.
The permanent nesting restriction covers the whole crag. Several protected species nest on the crag and above the descent gully, and if present the whole crag is restricted between the above dates. Keep an eye/ear open for the birds and for signs on the approach. If the birds fledge early or fail to nest then the signs will be removed.
The routes on the left hand side that are approached by abseil (Opal Moon) are also restricted due to nesting sea-birds.
