Dome ButtressHighland, SCOTLAND
Climbs 9 – Rocktype Gneiss – Altitude 161m a.s.l – Faces NW
Being only 15 minutes drive from Fort William, it's actually quicker to get to than many Polldubh crags, and deserves more attention. There is new route potential for someone with a wirebrush and some boldness.
The main belay is a good large nut / cam slot in the top of the dome, above a wee scramble up slabs - it is recommended to tie a doubled-up spare rope to this, and drop one end towards the road and one end towards the gully, to provide easier belaying/abseiling.
The tempting public transport option of getting the Mallaig train and pulling the emergency stop cord beneath the crag should be avoided - the crag is in full view of the train and you'd certainly get fined.
