Crag features

The Tynrich Slab is a charming, underrated, and understarred slab of crystalline gneiss on an open sunny terrace with typically tranquil views. Delicate and sometimes bold slab climbing provides a good contrast to the burl and brutality of the nearby Ruthven boulder.  The Frank Sinatra Walls are steeper and have been climbed on less - deserves more traffic.  Other smaller crags are dotted around.

Approach notes

Access to all climbs is easiest from the RSPB car park as for the Ruthven Boulder.

The wide slot and seams leading back to the top of Scorpion in Fly Agaric. Chanterelle is further left and has no gear on its upper section.

I've sent an update to Neil but in case it takes a while to get on: This is a wee gem of a slab that is well worth a visit and provides another great option in the Strathnairn valley and gives delightful and delicate climbing. Some of the grades and descriptions in Highland Outcrops are wrong: Chanterelle - probably takes the brief wide slot and thin seams leading towards Scorpion. Trumpet Of The Dead - definite ** Blewit - definite *** Slippery Jack - hard E3 5c and probably ** Schist As A Newt - doesn't exist, probably a retro claim on SJ. Strewth - maybe E1 5a and ** if clean.
