Torridon Celtic Jumble

Climbs 222 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude ? – Faces all

Crag features
The Celtic Jumble is a great bouldering venue in a beautiful and amazing location. The climbing is on the perfect sandstone boulders and edges scattered around the loch, offering a variety of problems from highball to low starts with all conceivable grades. This is most defiantly a place for anyone bouldering at any level as their is something for everyone. Quick-drying but avoid climbing on any damp rock, it is also important to note that the grades can vary from sandbags to extreme soft touches, so don't be surprised if those 3s feel like 4+s and vise versa.

Approach notes
Good access but show respect.
