Schoolhouse Buttress

Isle of Skye, SCOTLAND

Climbs 9 – Rocktype Sandstone (soft) – Altitude 3m a.s.l – Faces SE

Crag features
Two minutes' walk from the jetty parking at Elgol. Despite being flaky and loose in places, it offers a few worthwhile routes, in particular Schoolhouse Buttress and Bee Keeper's Bother, and with the Cuillin as a backdrop you could do worse. The crazy honeycombs at the base of the main buttress are too friable for climbing, but worth a look for interest.

Great venue for a chilled out afternoon or as an addition to the other nearby seacliffs. Did Apiary Arete, Schoolhouse Buttress, Schoolhouse Rock & Beekeepers Bother. Thought they were all worthwhile routes with some good climbing. Beekeepers Bother is very good despite the odd loose hold.

Schoolhouse Buttress is a good VS, and the E1 up the pillar looks a good line, but everything else looks crumbly and pointless. Worth a minor detour if you've been on Suidhe Biorach.
