Langcliffe is regularly patrolled by YDNPA wardens and conservation volunteers. The quarry area is also designated as a Scheduled Monument under the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979 and English Heritage consider that any further drilling to place bolts may constitute a criminal offence unless consent is gained via them from the Secretary of State.
Skyline Buttress is in private ownership and no formal access agreement is in place. Negotiations have failed to resolve the issue with the landowner of this buttress, who has occasionally asked climbers to leave.
Restrictions apply from
Reason: Nesting Birds
The restriction applies to Crag X - the esoteric crag in the woods at the northern end of Langcliffe Scar.
The previous restriction for climbing in the quarry is not in place this year as birds have failed to nest.
