East Dumbarton, SCOTLAND

Climbs 14 – Rocktype Dolerite – Altitude 496m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
A quiet crag set in a spectacular position overlooking Glasgow and the Kilpatricks. The main escarpment is 100m high but exceptionally loose and grassy. Most of the climbing is on the square buttress at Jenny's Lum and offers low-grade routes of about 10m.

Much loose rock at the crag, it has been pretty much abandoned for decades. Spring + autumn are the best times. Beware summer, the approach slopes are a jungle once the bracken grows: get high up quickly, then traverse on thinner vegetation.

Access notes
Park at the Blanefield War Memorial and follow the Campsie Dene Road 5-10 minutes to the end of the houses. At the first RHS field, follow a track onto the hillside. This climbs almost to the bottom of the landslide debris.
