Hawkswick Crag North Yorkshire, ENGLAND
Climbs 140 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 330m a.s.l – Faces SW
Pleasant locstion with some nice climbing but the grades could tempt a novice IMHO this is not a good crag for a novice due to losse rock and the difficulty of setting safe belays.
Moderator's note: I climbed here as a novice and thought it was OK (though didn't return for over 10 years so maybe I just erased the memory!)
Parking is very limited, 2 cars tops by the barn and maybe 2 on the verge towards arncliffe

In all honesty, I wouldn't bother with this crag.... No parking, orrible walk up, really short pitches, dirty, loose, hardly any belay placements, undergraded... Underwhelming and dangerous. Poss the worst crag I've ever visited.|

A pair of secateurs or even loppers would be a useful addition to the rack of any visiting team!
It's worth noting that there are some big gaps between routes so it can be quite challenging to work out which groove line is being talked about in the guide.
