Dunglas

Climbs 43 – Rocktype Basalt – Altitude 100m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
Most climbing is on the west face which needs several days to dry after rain. Check out the the hexagonal columns on the right.

The west sports face stays reasonably dry in rain. Some loose holds are now settling. The west face now has four lower offs and closely spaced routes, which can be combined in many ways! LEAVE all in-situ lower-offs in place thankyou.

Access notes
Best avoided in the lambing season, February and March. http://www.scottishclimbs.com/wiki/Dunglas

Please park in Strathblane at the church and walk in along the pleasant old railway path towards Lennoxtown. 15 min. No parking at the farm!!

Can anyone tell me if the bolt in the boulder is still there as described below? would be looking to shunt some of the routes.

Nice crag, friendly atmosphere, good day out. Could do with a lower off above Whip lash, ann extra bolt in Poopdeck above the bulge and Andy's old bolts replaced in Negotiations and Beef. Anyone got any objections to me taking up the hilti next time? Also the single krabs on LO which lie flat on rock would benefit from a Maillon to make them perpindicular to the wall, will see what I can do.

A very contrived sport 'crag-let', albeit a pleasant one. Your best bet is to forget the routes (as may be described) and just climb random lines at will for training purposes. Plenty of variations are possible but giving them names is, frankly, a bit redundant.

Sector Sport - Best to use the Stone Country topo (2010 Yearbook) as a rough guide and just link the bolts as you see fit. Lots of good climbing in a lovely setting.

Sport routes are *extremely* crammed in and confusing, however most of them are proper climbs (or usually variants on the few real lines), apart from Tanning Salon Direct which simply doesn't exist. Will try to get a topo made at some point.

didnt bother looking at trad though the sport routes are value if you are getting into the 7s. Though found it very hard to work out which route was which! (especially the 6bs!?) photo topo anyone? for those shunting or top roping, there is a bolt on a boulder above the crag to lower off, this takes you to the top of the 4th sport belay.

Major shortage of belays on the trad routes, anyone know how to place a stake securely?
Brendan - 19/Apr/09
Rubbish crag!! Loose, covered in shite, no belays!! Looks good from the road but really isn't.

Do you have more up to date information?
