Crag features

Small crag of striking columnar Basalt about 10m high. Dries quickly and stays dry under large beach trees.

The guidebook is nearly useless because it talks about cracks, grooves and corners when there are just these columns of basalt! 

6 August 2017 - visited the crag today, currently unclimbable heavy moss coverage needs a good clean. 

Approach notes

Lies in the trees on the south side of the B821 about 1km east of Craigmore.

We visited this crag today. It's not that easy to find and you rather stumble across it (hopefully not literally as it's quite a drop!). No question it needs some work to clean up but looks quite interesting. Anyone up for teaming up to clean it off? We can offer some bodies but not much kit or experience.

climbed all these routes heaps of times in the 80"s.they were all clean then and quite good fun.

Unfortunatly carpeted in moss. However this would clean easily with some effort... only The Horror (just) climbable today.

Think this might get my worst-crag-ever vote.

Good if you've interested in geology, but not much climbing - it's very overgrown. Shame.
