- Approach: From the east (Chester etc.): Come off the A55 expressway at Llanddulas (junction 23). Turn right at the roundabout by the filling station (great bacon baps at the “55 Diner” by the way) and then immediately left towards Old Colwyn (A547). Follow the hill for 1.5 miles to just over the crest of the hill where a lay-by for limited parking can be seen on the right by the apartment development known as Cliff Tops. From the west (Llandudno etc.): Come off the A55 expressway at Old Colwyn (junction 22). Turn right under the expressway and soon turn left at the roundabout towards Llanddulas / Abergele (A547). After about 1 mile and almost at the crest of the hill, park in the lay-by on the left. Follow the steps down the public footpath from the lay-by and the crag quickly appears.
