Access Advice

The parking mentioned in YG has been mostly blocked off. See comments re alternatives.

Snowden Crags Parking There seems no easy solution to the blocked off parking. Please don't park below the crag at Crag House as this is likely to cause difficulties. You can just about squeeze a (small) car into the old space but make sure you are well off the road. Other options exist further along the lane from Crag House but again please use your discretion and don't block access. If all else fails there is a very big parking place back towards Otley and the moor is open access. Cross the fence with care and enjoy the warm-up hike.

Some really great problems from 6c up, all clean. But all the lower grade stuff (Skull wall, Rainbow etc) was absolutely sopping/overgrown (in Jan mind).

An amazing little crag. For me the boulder problem Nigel's Roof Left Hand is just amazing and there are still plenty hard first ascent lines to be done!!!
