Shetland Islands, SCOTLAND

Climbs 9 – Rocktype UNKNOWN – Altitude 6m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
This is split into three areas:

Arched Wall:

The wall opposite Faither stack which is descended by the line of the abseil for approaching the stack. Routes can be climbed from the tidal platform as an alternative to a long jumar up the wall after climbing the stack. The wall is broken in its lower half by a black right slanting ramp line and is made up of large pockets.

Prophecy Wall:

The wall is easily seen to the north of the Arched Wall and is also SW facing. The routes can be climbed at mid to high tide from a hanging belay.

Hidden Wall:

This wall is NE facing and cannot be viewed from the land.

A wide range of cams are useful for Arched Wall and Prophecy Wall.
