Proper winter climbing @ Farr © Fiend

Crag features

A good mid-grade boulder of clean and rough gneiss, sitting amidst cleared forestry only two minutes from the road. Technical problems and decent landings.

Approach notes

Drive through Farr towards Brin. After about half a mile take a left towards Garbole. After a few hundred metres park on the right by some forestry clearings. The boulder is visible from the road - about 2 minutes walk.

Quite obviously the SECOND best single boulder after the Ruthven Boulder, but still an excellent must-visit bloc. Awesome rock and good technical problems to complement Ruthven's burliness.

the best single boulder in strathnairn, wonderful featured rock and a dozen or so quality problems make this an essential add on to a brin trip, oh and its fast drying and relatively midge free
