/ Any good bouldering in Angus, Scotland?
Does anyone recommend/know of anywhere remotely half decent to go bouldering in the Kirrimuir/Forfar area of Angus?
I've had a gander on UKC and all I can find is Balmashanner Quarry which says "Some bouldering on Left hand wall of quarry and good bouldering traverse of right wall at 7b+ (french route grade)"
I have a car to drive further afield if they is somewhere decent...
Any suggestions welcome
As said above, just drive a bit further to Glen Clova,beautiful setting, roadside crags, and boulders.
I found the Stone Country guide ebook: http://issuu.com/stonecountry/docs/bouldering_in_scotland_2008_ebook?e=1036877/2859611
Its only got 1 page on Glen Clover though, I was wondering if either of you knew of any more free topos.
There is also some traversing to be had at Ley Quarry. Some of the dundee climbers come up to the aberdeen coast for bouldering as there isn't much in the angus area. There is quite a bit around Aberdeen but I won't comment on the quality.
Check the tide times and try to make Portlethen near Aberdeen, the John watson guide has a decent selection of problems. Clova is excellent but most of the new stuff is not in a guide yet, check out the SCWiki web page as there used to be a guide available from there, and there is one on UKB with recent stuff from me and a a couple of others- in Clova if you climb V4,Font6B/+ the the John Peel problems are a must do :)
The Shanner traverse mentioned is I believe in the region of Font 7A/B
Aye i've found the SCWiki page on Clova and saved it as a PDF, and I also found your thread on UKB about Clova from 20th June - could you email/link me to the topo please, it would be mighty useful to have the punter grades.
