Climbed there on 22/04/15 and two Barn Owls flew out of a crevice in the rock just below the tree belay on pitch two. Possibly nesting, please be aware. Cheers
TILLY - 24/Apr/15
If the leaves are out (i.e summer) you'd better be ready to bushwhack about a bit to find your crag. A good venue but maybe not quite 'roadside' due to crashing about in hillside woodlands.
I am the God of Strathyre - 28/May/05
Great crag with excellent routes in most grade. However, Pine Wall is over graded in quality and difficulty. Tip: Put midge repelent on your ankles if your not wearing socks.
