Cringle Crag

Crag features
An under-developed crag, with Rock Climbing in dry weather and Winter climbing during the winter.

The summer routes have an intimidating feel to them and have seen very few repeats. The classic of the crag, Wedge Route, fell down in winter 2011. There still remain a few things of interest in the E3-E5 category.

The winter routes are given Scottish grades despite their diminutive size, as they can be pretty spicey. Most of the winter climbing is on Buttresses either side of the main crag, but if the main crag ever came into condition it would provide some hard testpieces.
