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.

Reason: Nesting Birds
Tawny owls have nested in Roof Route in the past and may again in future. Please be aware of this during spring and early summer as tawny owls have been known to viciously attack people climbing near their nest in the past. If the birds are present it is worth steering well clear of this and adjacent routes.
