BLACKNOR CENTRAL


Blacknor Central is the least popular of the Blacknor cliffs offering a series of broekn walls but with some great routes dotted along its length.

Conditions
Blacknor Central is a good late-morning sun venues. There is little seepage, apart from a few drainage streaks on the Niagara Wall section of the Go With The Flow Area. It is fairly exposed to the wind, but can offer shelter if the wind is blowing straight onto, or over, the cliff-line.

Access
The main access problems here are to do with parking. Please follow the parking instructions described below, this will avoid the problems that have been created in the past by climbers parking randomly in the Weston Estate. Only one short section of the Blacknor Cliffs has a restriction due to nesting birds; no climbing from March 1st to July 31st.
