The landowner, Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, has advised that a considerable quantity of rubble has been bulldozed over the crag top, some of which may now be lying on ledges and in vegetation on the cliff face. Climbers should excercise caution when climbing at the crag as there is likely to be more loose material than would normally be expected on the routes. 15/02/2011

Development of Ban-Y-Gor has been voluntarily restricted to the lower teirs of the rock, as climbs on the Upper Tier would otherwise top out into the gardens of those who live above the cliff! A further consideration is that climbers should not trespass onto the crag-top path north of Developer's Gully.

Group Advice

Generally unsuitable for group use.
