User attention

Tawny owls appear to be nesting on Kremlin Crack this year - please avoid this route (and potentially nearby routes) until the end of June for your own well being as much as that of the birds - see 'seasonal restrictions' below for more info.  from 16/05/2018 to 30/06/2018

Superb crag in oak-woodland setting.

Crag information
Climbing Area: Peak District Rock Type: Gritstone
Importance: Regional CRoW Land: No
Ownership: Private No. of Routes: 136
Within National Park: Yes Year Developed: 1928
Grid Reference: SK280873

The landowner (a tree surgeon with a vision of how this woodland should be managed), protested strongly to the BMC about damage to trees and erosion to footpaths around the crag. Climbers should avoid the area to the right of Altar Crack and respect its integrity as a conservation area. Any further damage to trees will result in the loss of all access for climbing.

Tawny owls sometimes nest on the crag in the spring (previously on Kremlin Crack or Roof Route) - if present avoid the route(s) they are occupying until the nest is vacated.

Tawny owls have been known to viciously attack  people climbing near their nest, so please steer well clear of these routes until the chicks have fledged, both for the benefit of the birds and your own wellbeing.

Group Advice

The landowner has stipulated no instructional groups.
