/ Top Roping Pass of Ballater
The Western section has plenty of good trees to set up top ropes on
Thanks. I was also wondering about top-roping at the Cambus O'May quarry. I visited the quarry last weekend and it appears pretty advanced. Do you know if it's reasonable/safe for beginner/intermediate climbers to top-rope there?
The middle tier on the Western section of the Pass is perfect for top ropes. Upper tier too but there's not as many easy routes there.
Cambus O May is not so good, although you can get to most of the lower offs from the top (with a bit of care) the easier routes tend to be wet, bouldery and a bit loose. The stuff from 7a up is good though it may need a clean.
Thanks. I'll give it a go as soon as things dry out a bit.
