In Nov 2014 the BMC was contacted by Groundworks South who own the main crag, following a helicopter rescue of a climber nearby. Groundworks have advised that they do not formally allow climbing at the site however after several attempts to arrange a meeting to discuss climbing access, nothing has been forthcoming so far. Climbing at Goblin Coombe is not allowed by the landowner, but if climbers do decide to visit the crag and are asked to leave by Groundworks staff, they should do so politely.

As with any crag, climbing here is an activity with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions.

Restrictions apply from 25 February - 31 May.

Reason: Nesting Birds

The restriction applies to the routes Trim the Fringe to Route March for nesting ravens.

Group Advice

Group use is discouraged at the crag, if you wish to visit as a group please call the centre on (01934) 833 723.
