Crag features

The left wall was rebolted in september and October 2017 with stainless steel bolts and lower offs.  This was funded by the SMT and 7aMAX.  There is some loose rock on the right hand side of the left wall (the routes to the right of the 6C)

If you use this crag please consider giving to the Scottish Bolt Fund at or (theres a donate button at the bottom of the contacts page).  This will allow us to keep bolts up to date in Scotland and continue to develop resources for climbers.

The right hand side of the crag has not been rebolted and the Scottish Sport guide suggests climbing with care as some of the hangers are missing - this is well noted in the sport guide and I have copied the information into the routes here. Lots of eliminate routes on the right wall. The best thing about the crag is the ease of access and awesome views. Can seep a bit.

Atonement Wall - the bolts seem in good condition so were not replaced.  There is one single bolt lower off on the wall or else pre-place slings around the trees at the top.
