Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

Crag features

The sea cliffs around the crofts of Reiff give pinnacles, bouldering and impressive geos in an amazing setting.
Plenty of climbing in a superb location.

Approach notes

PARKING - IMPORTANT
The locals are very friendly and reasonable and are happy for people to park here but they are concerned about their own access. Please take great care not to block any gates or access for local residents. If there is no room to park then please park a little further away and walk in.

KITCHEN AT REIFF - Sara Nason is now running a small kitchen here and welcomes climbers for soup and bread lunches, teas and suppers which may help supply a much needed sustenance after a climb or walk.

Tidal
You must park with consideration for the local houses, as this is a local concern and we don't want to lose access, please! (Jon Read)
