The Water Margin, Portobelo © Lawrie Brand

Crag features

A sunny cliff with excellent rock. This cliff probably has the highest concentration of Extreme grade routes in the south-west of Scotland.

Take RP's and small wired nuts for the many narrow cracks.

Approach notes

Some crags are tidal and great care is needed.
