Due to ground nesting birds, the landowners have been granted a CRoW Act restriction to ensure dogs are kept on a lead. Most of the crag is also on the North York Moors SSSI.
Parking can be an issue for the Scugdale crags. There is a small parking bay beneath the crags and some off road parking requiring consideration for road users. Parties should consider car sharing from Swainby village. There is an alternative approach combining a moor walk from Carlton Bank.
Park minibuses so that other climbers can also park.
Please be mindful of the impact of top-roping etc on the soft sandstone rock.

The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) is the representative body that exists
to protect the freedoms and promote the interests of climbers, hill walkers and
mountaineers, including ski-mountaineers. The BMC recognises that climbing, hill
walking and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death.
Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be
responsible for their own actions.
