Evening climbing at Traprain Law © planetmarshall
This wee crag is perfect for beginners, an easy half-day or summers evening, offering interesting climbing in the lower to middle grades. Dries quickly and climbing can be had at anytime of the year.
The routes are relatively short, well protected and the non-serious feel of the crag is pleasing.
*Also home to the Most Polished routes in Scotland ?? [Scott D 7/02]
Take great care when parking at the bottom not block the road, nor access to fields.
Access update from the access officer - April 2013
"He(the farmers son) accepts that people have a right to get to the crags and has said that people can walk the original route, across the crops until a better route is created.
His intention is to build a car park at the bottom of the right of way at the west side of Traprain and for there to be a path from the car park to the crags. I am very pleased that this has been agreed, but I think it will be next year before he is able to start any work on it."
Having had a look this week (30/04/2013) please take care not to stray off the line of the old wall as there are crops planted across the full width of the field.
