From time to time, the crag is a favoured hang out for local teens - this can mean you might encounter some smashed glass so it's worth being careful on and around the crag. There has been one recent report of climbers having cans, bottles and stones thrown at them from the top of the crag. If this happens to you, report it to the police immediately.
Open access land, designated under the Countryside & Rights of Way Act (2000) give area access rather than linear access as provided by public rights of way. It also gives a legal right of access specifically for climbing, as well as walking and other quiet recreation on foot.
Please bear in mind however that the landowner still has the right to restrict access for up to 28 days per year (often used on public safety grounds for shooting in moorland areas), and can also apply for longer term restrictions with Natural England (such as bans on dogs, or regular restrictions during particular times of year). It is important to check for these restrictions regularly as they can be added at short notice – all details for open access land in England can be found on Natural England’s website.
