The BMC has formed a management partnership with the owners of Craig Pant Ifan, permitting a continuation of access for climbers and protecting conservation interests. Previously, the 16.8 ha broadleaved woodland of Crag Pant Ifan had been managed by the Countryside Council of Wales under a 59 year lease. The BMC have also been working closely with the CCW to ensure the access paths remain in good condition, and this will contribute towards conserving the valuable ecological features of the site. committing to protecting the sensitive environments in which they take place. Although no longer a National Nature Reserve the whole area remains a Site of Special Scientific Interest and has considerable conservation value. No new route cleaning or vegetation clearance should be undertaken without prior approval. The CCW will continue to own the remaining part of the National Nature Reserve – Craig y Dre. No climbing activity is authorised at the Craig y Dre site.
