Crag features

Composed of a very solid conglomerate the crag is suited to trad climbing. It is in a fine open setting and receives the sun till about 3pm in summer. A FREE GUIDE DOWNLOAD can be found at http://www.smc.org.uk/Downloads/Ashie%20Fort%20Topo.pdf or google "Ashie Fort SMC" as it is a little difficult to find on the SMC web site.

The crag is actually fairly quick drying except for The Wall and the top of Wooly Jumper.

A handy roadside crag. Good, sound rock. The harder routes tend to take lines up clean rock. Unfortunately, not the case for most of the easier routes which have varying levels lichen, moss and dirt. Some of the lines take drainage from the hill above, and remain wet for a few days after heavy rainfall. Some of the belays take a little thought and searching for. If this crag were in a more populated area it would probably be very popular and kept clean by the number of climbers doing the routes.
