Access issues

All of the crags in the North Esk are on PRIVATE LAND. Please be respectful of this fact. Access to these areas could be jeopardised by climbers doing the wrong thing. Sticking to the following guidelines will help:

  1. Do not park in front of gates or access tracks. Park on the far (south) side of the gate so the owner can get ute/trailer in if she needs to. Consider parking at the bridge and walking up the road.

  2. Leave all gates as you find them. Climb first gate on the hinge end to protect the gate and use that gate for access to both Riverbend and The Crystal Palace cliffs. When you get to the second gate (for Riverbend access) open and then close it rather than climbing over it.

  3. Keep off any cultivated land by walking on edges of the fields. Stay away from all livestock. The cliffs will be closed annually between June - August for lambing season. Please climb elsewhere during this period.

  4. NO DOGS!

  5. No fires

  6. Carry out all rubbish (including finger tape)

  7. If you must answer a call of nature at the crag, follow leave no trace principles by going at least 50 m away from the rock or the river, dig a hole at least 15 cm deep, and carry out any toilet paper in ziplock bag.

  8. Leave the bluetooth speakers at home, and generally remember to behave as if you were at somebody else's house (because you are).

  9. Clean your shoes before you arrive if you have been to other farms.
