Ace crag with all sectors having fine and aesthetic climbing, even the shorter Qui Ayre point is good. Be warned that almost all areas are properly tidal except Spectator's Geo, so some mixing and matching is useful. Also take heed that Bleed It Dry is closer to E4 and Thing Of Dreams really is as hard as it looks and a solid E4 6a. Most of the others seem fine and fair at the grade.|

Fantastic intro to Orkadian climbing. Needs an update on the routes - lots in the guide not on the web e.g Skull Splitter.

I climbed this stack in 1981 while spending about a month up in Orkney. One of us swam and the others still got wet on a poorly rigged tyrolean !! Great fun, and seemed about HVS 5A following the route first done by Joe Brown as a warm up for the Hoy TV extravaganza.
