The Hoff

Eden Valley

After many years of unrestricted access a change in ownership led to a ban on climbing. Short routes on an amazing type of conglomerate called Brockram, could be the only crag of this rock in the UK?

Crag information
Climbing Area: Lake District Rock Type: Other
Importance: Local CRoW Land: No
Ownership: Private No. of Routes: 22
Within National Park: No Year Developed:
Grid Reference: NY 675 180

Currently banned year round by the landowner. Negotiations are ongoing - any climbing that takes place whilst the ban is in force is likely to antagonise the access situation.

Area information

With implimentation of the CRoW Act (2000), many Lakes fells and crags now have an Open Access designation. They also have many nationally important bird and plant species dependant on inaccessible crags/ledges and heather/mixed heath environments for survival. During the bird nesting period, a number of species can be vulnerable to disturbance. The Lake District restrictions are monitored, variable (VR) and reviewed in April/May. If the birds do not nest, restrictions are lifted early. Check the BMC and FRCC websites in early May for details. New restrictions will be notified on the websites and with on-site notices.
