Sron Ulladale (Harris) Hebrides, SCOTLAND
Climbs 30 – Rocktype Gneiss – Altitude 200m a.s.l – Faces W
Also known as "Strone", this large, overhanging crag in the Outer Hebrides is one of Britain's most impressive chunks of rock. Most famous for The Scoop (E6), there are numerous high quality routes in the E4/E5 range. The crag still has a mythical status despite more climbers travelling to Harris to climb 'Britain's best E6'. Some other fine outings include Stone (E5), Mosskill Grooves (E6/7) and The Chisel (E6/7). 'The Sron' is also surrounded by at least ten more major crags [also see Scaladale] under development & further to this, both 'The Sron' & it's surrounding warriors, harbour unlimited winter gully routes waiting for claimants & conquerors. Davie get yer jacket on, we're going for a walk!
Ferry from Uig in Skye to Talbert on Harris. Drive north out of Talbert along the A659, turn left by the loch and head along this single track road for approx 10 miles until you reach the castle. Just before the castle arch, there is a road heading up to the dam, which is barred by a gate, park just before this. A good path follows the right side of the dam and eventually drops down towards the crag (1.5 hrs carrying a big pack). There are some bivvy caves below the crag among the boulders and a lake.
Golden Eagles sometimes nest there, at which times climbing is strongly discouraged. You can check status by contacting ranger Robin Reid, who is extremely helpful. His contact details are here:
