was here a couple of week ago, and either lost or had taken a full pack of micro nuts, did anyone see them? cheers

Wonderful training crag, was here after a long hiatus and the routes gave a perfect warm up on to some tricky problems on the upper mid grades. Some moss but otherwise v dry. Easy to find as long as you park on the south side of the law.

A lovely crag for a gentle evenings climbing, polish is not bad at all (especially for those used to the delights of South Quarry)

MacNiven's Left hand variant and Wobble are superb; easily worth ** and quite hard. Great rock. didn't see any scratch marks from Ice climbing though but what pr*cks would do that anyway?!

Maybe I'm a bit soft, but an hour's walk to an outcrop seems to defeat the purpose of having outcrops! You'd get to the bottom of most routes in the 'Coe faster!

I agree that access is not impossible by public transport.. Why, the bus stop at the bottom of east linton is right next to the access path, and it is a lovely walk along the river, past Hales Castle and up the track.. Easily navigable as well, since you can see traparin itself from pretty much anywhere.

Word up Mehmet! We did a crackin walk from east linton along the river, past the castle and round the back of the law in 45min..... why is it that climbers have such an aversion to walk ins? thgen spent 6hrs on the crags, walked backed the shorter route along the road and got a pint before goin home. beaut!

I would just like to say going to Traprain Law on public transport isn't impossible at all. Get the bus to East Linton and it's an hour's walk along flat ground from there. If you're used to walking to mountain routes this shouldn't be a problem at all. Maybe I'm biased as if I didn't rely on public transport I'd never get to go climbing at the moment?
It's worth going to but the polish can be an issue.

A superb place for those with cars. Aggree entirely with Reuben.

A lovely place... but I wouldn't even think about getting there on public transport. The polish is severe, and as such, the Hawkcraig's rough dolerite is probably better for beginners (and the gear's easier to spot). The outlook counts for a lot, but it can be exposed to the wind.

This is not a winter climbing venue but some clowns seem to have been treating it as one. There are scratches all over the place now.
