Thomas Ball on Law of Gravity (RH Start) 7a+ © tom_Ball

Crag features

Perfect contrast to traditional climbing at nearby Trapain Law.

Provides a few bolted lines in a sun trap.

Year round climbing possible.

Treat grades with a pinch of salt.


Approach notes

Easy to get to - head for big hill behind North Berwick and park near the Primary School

Whoever was top-roping on the main wall this evening (16/7) - you are a bunch of rude idiots. Basically look like locals, don't say hello back when greeted. A top rope set up on a route, but actually climbing the route next to the one the rope is on. Very rude when challenged. Hogging the route all night. Then to top it off that bunch decided it was a good idea to smoke the whole place out with a disposable BBQ. Sport climbs may be worth it, but never coming back. Compared to this, Aberdour is Chamonix! Never met such an unpleasant, rude and uneducated bunch of locals!

Worth visiting for the bolted lines in the corner. None of the 'trad' routes are worth a star or anywhere near it though; unprotected, easy-angled slabs with mostly poor rock.

Sport climbing is very good here and has alot of quality lines. However the trad in the area is a different story. I don't recommend the car park buttress, although there are some fantastic views once up there.

The sports routes make a good introduction to the F6a to F7a grades as they are short and on perfect rock. The trad climbing is gearless and severly overgraded but there is plenty of good bouldering about if you are willing to poke around for it. Worth a visit.
