The crag is on private land and access has been granted by the landowner on the following basis:
- No dogs are allowed at the crag - this is very important as the farmer is happy to allow climbing at the crag, providing it doesn't affect his livestock. A recent incident involving a dog at the crag has jeopardised future access. Following a conversation with the landowner, access for climbing is still allowed, but further incidents could easily result in a total ban.
- Access is available for climbers only
- Livestock are not to be disturbed
- The gate should be left closed
- No Litter
- No damage to property
Parking and Approach
The owner of the land sometimes has a lock on the gate into the field leading to Cowdy Rocks. This is to ensure that the gate is kept closed and sheep do not escape from the field. He has said if the gate if locked then access to the field should be made from the car park, next to the river, by climbing over the metal fence next to the car park, into the field and walk along by the fence to the crag. He is happy for climbers to use the crag - but wants to keep his sheep in.
