Rosemergy Towers

Climbs 15 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 100m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
Pleasant routes up to 120 ft which should keep most people entertained for an evening or afternoon. No outstanding routes but "a nice prelude to the pub". Marked as "Long Carn" on OS maps.

Access notes
Environmentally sensitive, with unusual bird and plant life. Please leave it that way and take all your litter.

Park at the small carpark with a square toilet block along the B3306. Bear L across the road and follow the path by the NT sign to a junction with the coast path. Turn R, go over the first rocky ridge. The crag (with obvious slab) is 300m ahead, and just below the coast path. Follow the path until level with the crag, then head L down through heather and gorse to the outcrop.

This page is a mess, all the routes are in the wrong order, maybe the mod could tidy it up a bit?

Classic spot for beginners with a nice variety of climbs. Great top rope area with some good problems. Hard Times is fantastic *, but by far our favourite is Go Shorty ** which has a strenuous stretchy move to finish. Photo's to follow soon. Quiet and picturesque spot for a chilled out day.

Nice little crag, never seen anyone else there. Brilliant E1 5c called "hard times" on a steep slab, hard moves and gear in expanding breaks. Amazing
