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! Please will someone relate the route names to the ditinctive trees/boulders or include some distances between routes?

Approach notes

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

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.

Volunteer to moderate Pillar Crag
We rely on volunteers to moderate their local crags. You would check updates and approve climbs added to the database. It's a very easy job, and all you need is a guidebook and an hour or two each month. [ read more ]
