Crag U, Lower - Tighalt

Climbs 10 – Rocktype Quartzite – Altitude 1600m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
The lower section of crag U. Lots of climbs up to 300m here. Good multi-pitch routes, although finding and sticking to them can be an issue. Approach it with an open mind, an easy looking route can often turn out to be somewhat harder especially if you are breaking new ground. Be prepared for abseil retreats, you may need to leave gear if your route goes astray.

Approach notes
Park somewhere a few hundred metres west of the village of Tighalt, there are several areas to park the car just off the side of the road. Walk up to the crag over the top of the hill or through the gorge, beware though it is full of loose earth, rocks and boulders and could be very dangerous if you are caught in a storm. The walk is quite strenuous and takes about an hour. There is plenty of scrambling and spiky plants to hassle you if you take the ridge to the right of the gorge. The crag is located on the right hand side as the stream bed emerges steeply from the gorge and before it enters the rift between the rock faces.
