Bouldering in Glen Tarbert. © Alex the Alex

Crag features

Two areas really. The eastern Split Bloc - a large gneiss block on the south of the road near the Garbh Bheinn parking. And the Strontian Bouders west of the watershed - a number of large granit erratics with the majority of the problems. The glen is deep and east/west facing so gets very little light or heat in the winter. Best in spring after dry spells. Loads of boulders still to climb and one of the best looking hard projects in the uk. 

Approach notes

10min approach to the Strontian blocs. Park carefully in one of the laybys. The boulders are visible down by the river. The river is generally crossable with wellies but take care if in spate.
