/ Toproping venues near Dumfries?
Any crag recommendations much appreciated. (average grade of HS is best)
Probably to do with how easy to get the accommodation.
I've just been asked to instruct on it.
Clifton trumps any Central Belt venue for my money - good rock (granite) and a pleasant outlook. However the OP does need to consider group issues - the rather malevolent-looking bull that used to live in the field you have to cross being one of these...
Clifton is very good, top quality climbing and as Jamie B says better than anything in the central belt.
However, while bits of the crag, especially the north end, are OK for top-roping many areas are not good for top-roping (diagonal lines, too many trees etc.). No bull in the field for many years.
Another option is Powillimont - not such good rock and not so much climbing, but a nice friendly area to work with a group - beach and barbecues!
My website will probably be useful for you
