/ Hebrides slabs
Off to the Hebrides for a week and a bit and hoping to get plenty of climbing in. Just wondering if anyone had and good recommendations for slab routes/ slabby cliffs in the vs-e2 range. I should add we’re probably just going to be on Harris and Lewis
Ideally footworky stuff as I’m struggling a little with an elbow injury at present.
thanks in advance
Not many I can think of... gneiss tends to be steep, if it’s not it’s really easy! Plenty of vert though...
Some of the walls in and around Painted Geo might fit the bill.
Some stuff around North Atlantic Wall, north of screaming geo and a few routes here and there but no major slabby seacliff venue that I can think of. Though if you're happy to look at multipitch then the slabs on Griomaval in Glean Teasdal are superb slabs S-E1 terrain @ c.300m long. North facing unfortunately, but I really enjoyed the climbing.
Wow that big praise thanks. And thanks to the other suggestions too
