The crag is owned by the National Trust and is designated as a SSSI owing to its rare flora. There are three species of rare tree in the area including the Lancashire whitebeam. The cliff top heath and grassland is also of special interest. Climbers are asked to respect the following guidelines: 1. There should be no vegetation removal (including gardening ivy). 2. Please avoid using trees or bushes for runners. 3. Use bolt abseil descent points where fitted. Thank you for you support.
