Access issues inherited from Cable Way Crags

• NB: MOST OF THE CRAGS ARE ACCESSED BY ABSEILING IN TO THE START OF THE CLIMBS, PLEASE TAKE CARE WHEN APROACHING AS THERE MAY BE CLIMBERS BELOW, SOME OF THE ABSEIL’S REQUIRE TWO RAPS. TIE KNOT’S IN THE END OF YOUR ROPE AND BE CARFULL NOT TO ABSEIL OFF THE END OF YOUR ROPES!! CHAINS ARE PROVIDED. A 80 M ROPE IS REQUIRED FOR THE ABSEIL INTO THIS AREA.

Approach

One will notice a prominent knoll about 60 m to the right (East) with a faint track leading off in this direction. The chains are marked with a Cairn and a tennis ball on a stake. After abseiling down these (30m abseil) the climbs can be found on this slab you have just abbed down or the harder ones on the prominent butters South of you. To access these you can either walk around the bit tress to the Right (West) or abseil down from the chains that can be found as one climbs over the top of the buttress.
