Crag 'open for climbers'
Bookmark and Share
The Shooters Nab crag in West Yorkshire is now open for climbers, the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) has said.

From this Friday (May 28th), those coming with their climbing equipment will be able to access the cliff at any time, following a joint initiative by Peak District National Park Authority officer Sue Smith, local shooting club secretary Peter Sutcliffe and the BMC's access officer Guy Keating.

The area above a patch of land known as the Rostrum and to its right are outside the "shot zone" used by the shooting club and can be used at any time, while the area to the left is within the area and can only be accessed at limited times.

By coming to this agreement, the BMC has established a safe time for climbers while enabling the shooting club to still use the area.

Last week, the body managed to restore access to the Carreg Alltrem outcrop in Snowdonia's Lledr Valley, after talks with the Forestry Commission.

The commission had gained an access restriction order lasting until October this year, due to timber felling and extraction work going on below.
