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

Steep and well protected on very good rock and south facing. Land of DD and Bardo Thodol are each three pitches, and hard for E1. An excellent crag. [John Hall 6/04]

Bardo Thodol has been upgraded to E2 in the new Northern Highlands North guide [Stuart Stronach 3/07]

Must Dos :
Bardo Thodol E2 5b
Land of the Dancing Dead E1 5b
Tank Top E6 6b (!)
The Roost VS 4c

Pronounced something like "HORRL-ya".

Approach notes

75 mins easy walk but can be a little wet. Abseil descent is not always easy to find.
