Possibly looking at a (first) visit over next few weeks, but stumbled across a few threads re the odd issue with parking, anti-social behaviour etc- does anyone know if there are any particular problems like that at the moment?
Thanks

I've never had an issue (although I've bit been this year yet). I always park in the recommended lay-by a bit further down the road rather than near the houses to avoid ant issues.

The only issues we had several years ago were hand and foot holds breaking off on Highway One like a dinosaur shedding scales. Everything we touched seemed to break off.

The easier routes were really nice and longer than they look due to slab forshortening. I thought it was a good crag for a day trip.

Don't park outside the houses. Fingers crossed for a rave!

Went there last weekend, all fine. Parked in the layby up the road.

Same for us - 3* in your dreams! Lots came off with us hanging onto them - nice - and the rest were about to come off.

Semi regular visitor - no problems ever encountered. The main slab is great fun...

Went 2 weeks ago and there were a bunch of kids pushing microwave size rocks down without any care for climbers. Also antagonised my dog while we topped out of the Boldest, abseiled down at 487mph and they vanished screaming into the sunset.

Went Sunday and it was purely climbers and dog walkers and a lovely day.

So just depends really..
