Crag features

Pleasant sunny walls and near to Aberdeen make this a great place to climb.

Good varity of single pitch routes. "Must do" routes: Birthday Treat E1 5a, Sunlover's Traverse E1 5b, Stiletto HS, Gorgon VS 5a, Blind Faith E3 5c. [Stuart 1/02]

Approach notes

Mostly non-tidal.

Generally free of nesting birds.

Guidebooks

The guidebook approach mentions an iron spike in some bare rock. There's now a ladder attached to the iron spike, so it's hard to miss.
