Crag features
***WARNING - BOLTS HAVE RECENTLY FAILED COMPLETELY ON THE ROUTES 'LAUREL' AND 'HARDY' AND LOOK SUSPECT ON OTHERS. PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL CLIMBING THE SPORT ROUTES AT PRESENT UNLESS YOU'VE INSPECTED AND ARE COMPETENT TO JUDGE THE CONDITION OF THE REMAINING BOLTS 21/6/13 ***

The original Aberdeen sport climbing crag has since had some trad routes added on walls to the north and south of the bolts.

The sports climbs tend to be short and vicious. The trad climbs tend to be on adventurous rock.

Access notes
Mostly non-tidal, though the routes at the south end of the headland are affected

Climbed at Boltsheugh Lower last night. 1 bolt broke on me (Hardy) and there is another loose one (Laurel??) I have the evidence of the broken one!!
eddiealaszewski - 20/Jun/13

After the weekend storms, the boulder jumble at the right-side (north) of the Upper section has been re-jumbled. Some serious lumps of rocks here, all seem to be stable, but shows the incredible power in the waves, especially as it is quite high up. The approach path has also taken a beating, still quite safe but some parts are noticably undercut, "be careful out there".
