The current access situation at Craig y Forwyn is as follows
Please only park at the approach Do not park on the verges or in front of houses onTrawscoed Road or anywhere on Issalt Road (the road below the crag). The correct parking is located at a hairpin bend off Trawscoed Road, through the left hand gate into the field. Park on the grass on the left-hand up-hill side (not on downside above slope to crag) OS Grid 902(5) 764(5) if it is too boggy it would be fine to park a couple of vehicles on the main track in the field. Don't worry about blocking the farmer's access as Bob Jones (the land owner) says he will be able to get around if required on his quad or 4 wheel-drive. He told the BMC Cymru Officer that he is very thankful that we (climbers) don't leave litter.
A. To get to this spot up the valley from Llanddulas:
Drive along Isallt Rd. below the escarpment, passing Plas Newydd Caravan Park. At 2 km beyond the caravan park, follow the road as it bends to the right to pass a Chapel on the right. At the following T-junction, turn right and proceed along Dolwen Rd. (Llysfaen) for approximately 200m then take a sharp right turn along Trawscoed Rd. After approximately 900m (the last 100m are quite rough) there is a sharp right hand hairpin with two gates on the left. Go through the metal gate and park on the grass above the farmers track/North Wales Footpath.
B. OR (better) from the A547 (Abergele Road):
Drive as you would do to get to Castle Inn quarry but do not turn down the lane to Castle Inn. Instead carry on past the Semaphore Inn and the school. At a grassed area turn left onto Trawscoed road. Saves driving down the lane.
Accessing the crag from the agreed parking is easy and convenient - walk from down the inclined field and head for a stile in the right hand corner. This will take you directly into the left hand sections of the crag.
