Mid Clyth

Climbs 70 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude ? – Faces SE

Crag features
More great Caithness climbing, especially around the concentrated "Stack" area. Criminally left out of Gary's Scottish Rock guide (to make space for longwinded descriptions of obscure E6s he did the second ascent of and a load of micro-routes on Mull etc), but well worth a visit, for the seal colony as much as the routes.

One of the best climbing areas north of Inverness, certainly the best on the Caithness coast.

Shame Clithoral Hood has not been allowed in. Great name!

Ha! Ha! I agree with the moderator's comments regarding Gary's guide. This place should be in!
