Crag features

A unique crag in a beautiful setting, best known for the classic Ardverikie Wall, though there are numerous excellent routes.

"The best crag I ever walked past." Tom Patey.

As an alternative finishing pitch for “Ardverikie Wall”, climb the last pitch of “Flypaper” by moving left along the Terrace to climb the obvious red streak. A perfect finish to a great route, certainly recommended. Graeme Hunter
