Crag features

Fine place to climb on the Aberdeen coast line, with view over to Slain's Castle.

Excellent cliff - large number of routes < 20m in length.

Bottom of some routes tend to weep.

Must Do : The Weight (HS); Albatross (S)

Can easily be combined with Meikel Partans which is right next door.

Approach notes

Tidal at the north end, but the south end is sheltered from rough seas.

Awkward descent - abseil may be preferred.

Beware of nesting birds

You would also have to be REALLY nervous to want to abseil..

The Weight is Hard Severe, and fairly poky at that.
