Earnsheugh

Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND

Climbs 32 – Rocktype Schist – Altitude 40m a.s.l – Faces E

Crag features
Earnsheugh offers some of the most gob-smacking seacliff climbing in Scotland, with loads of exposure on routes that are usually 2 or 3 pitches in length. Sheltered, but tends to weep.

"Must do" routes: Thugosaurus (E5 5b,6a,6a), Prehistoric Monster (E5 5b,6a,5b), Death Cap (E1 5a,5a), Necromancer (E5 5c,6a,5b),

Pterodactyl (E2 5a,5b,4c), Bat's Belfry (E2 5c,5c,5b).

Access notes
Non-tidal, and may be one of the few climbable crags on the coast in high seas.

The base of the crag can be reached by scrambling, but it is more common to abseil.
