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.

Some excellent wee sport and gear crags as well as boulders scattered throughout the woods near Weem on steep, excellent rock.
When approaching through the woods at Weem, climbers should ensure they stick to paths at all times to avoid any damage to flora and fauna.
Park cars with consideration, and do not block any private tracks or gates.
|can anyone point me to where weird wood is? can't find it in any guides|

|Someones done some major trimming up at the front face. It is now a lot more open and the rock should dry a bit quicker too. Many Thanks to whoever put in the effort|

|More trad routes in the new Highland Outcrops South guide although still a bit limited. Aerial Crag is a bit of a bugger to find and would benefit from some pruning of jaggy bushes at the tops of trad routes. Also, Static in the Air is not the three star E36A promised in the new guide, being fully bolted when visited earlier this month. (Will leave the trad vs sport debate for another day and another place.)|

|The main rock is hard to find. Took us ages. Look for a (small) cairn on the side of the trail. Go up over the rocks to reach the cragg.
The grid reference for the main cragg is NN844501.|

|Anyone know why the climbs on Easter Island buttress are roped/taped off at present?? Also the climbs on Secret Garden crag are inaccessible at the moment due to masses of cut rhodedendrum bushes..
Went there on 25.08.12, and wasn't able to climb. Finding the crags in the woodland at present, is also very difficult (unless you have been previously) due to fallen trees/cut rhodedenrums.|

|The Bouldering in Scotland book has quite clear directions to the bouldering walls, and some nice climbing when you get there, especially on hot days when the shade is very welcome!|

|Personally could not find the crag! Watch out for the table and chairs (an important waymarker) described in the guidebook - I don't think they exist anymore.|

|Almost all the grades and stars are wrong for Secret Garden. Gary's Scottish Rock is accurate except for: Missing Link is pointless and easier than Faithless, and Brass Monkeys is F6b+. Crag is a dick to find particularly with chopped rhodendron carnage, but is worth a visit on a fresh dry day.|

|A few of the grades seem questionable and some climbs are not listed in the correct order.|
