Crag features

A very quiet crag with short routes which because of a steep run-off feel higher.

Needs several days to dry after rain but can be warm in the sun.

Approach notes

From the Golf Club car-park the crag lies to the right of the woods on the hillside.

If you're interested in giving this place a clean please give me a shout, I'd be keen to help.

Went for a look this week, there are some good problems and the crag has a nice outlook but it is really overgrown. Anyone wanting to climb here will have to do some cleaning first. Far from the Maddening Crowds looks fantastic for anyone wanting a 7C project. It has a layer of lichen at the moment but it looks like it would be easy to clean on an ab rope.

Volunteer to moderate Craigton
We rely on volunteers to moderate their local crags. You would check updates and approve climbs added to the database. It's a very easy job, and all you need is a guidebook and an hour or two each month. [ read more ]
