Visited the crag on 3/9/14. Spoke to a chap at the hostel who said that the car parking as described in the guidebook is private land and would we mind parking back at the road on future visits. It would only add 5 minutes to the walk in.

Apart from the occasional dog walker, its very quiet. Top outs are quite uncomfortable due to thorn bushes and moss!
