Group Advice

Organised groups are requested not to use the crag - the NT are concerned at the damage that results to topsoil above the crag, and to the rare lichens etc on the rocks from heavy use.

On the way down the wooden steps towatds Job buttress there is a large fallen tree. Safe to go under at present. Then turn immediatley left on to the now obscured path to the buttress.

As you go down the steps towards Job buttress there is a fallen tree. Once passed the tree turned immediately left. You can then see the path. Great limestone crag for small numbers

Have replaced lower tape on 'Odd job' which is a VS as badly worn. Inspected top tape and weighted it and appears safe.(please use own discretion)

Blue Groove, Nothing But & Dead Good all have nesting birds with young at present so if climbing starts again please avoid the Main Area until they have moved on.

Visited today 16th June, no problem with birds ... the nest is still there on Dead Good, but no chicks.
