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.

Ardheslaig Crag © Chris F

Crag features

A collection of nice Gneiss routes of 35mts in length at a lowish grade. Very rough rock and generally well protected, however the top slabs although at a very easy angle do lack protection in parts.

Approach notes

Seen clearly from the road towards the houses of Ardheslaig.

Superb crag giving very nice delicate climbing at an amenable angle with excellent friction. Nice long routes for a single pitch venue too.

Lovely little crag. Especially good for first leads. Most routes deserve a star and are all worth doing.
