North York Moors

Top quality venue with a great collection of south facing, quick-drying crags & boulders only 10mins from the road.

Crag information
Climbing Area: North East Rock Type: Sandstone
Importance: Regional CRoW Land: Yes
Ownership: Private No. of Routes: 255
Within National Park: Yes Year Developed: 1930

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 and Approach

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. Please be aware that although the crags are on Open Access land, the path from immediately below the crags is not and is used on a permissive basis.

Group Advice

Park minibuses so that other climbers can also park.

Please be mindful of the impact of top-roping etc on the soft sandstone rock.
