Pillar Crag

Climbs 40 – Rocktype Basalt – Altitude 150m a.s.l – Faces N

Crag features
Small crag of striking columnar Basalt about 10m high. Dries quickly and stays dry under large beach trees.

The guidebook is nearly useless because it talks about cracks, grooves and corners when there are just these columns of basalt! Please will someone relate the route names to the ditinctive trees/boulders or include some distances between routes?

Access notes
Lies in the trees on the south side of the B821 about 1km east of Craigmore.

Good if you've interested in geology, but not much climbing - it's very overgrown. Shame.
