Crag features

Stunning lines breaching this 50m steep cliffs give some superb climbing. Known as "Esha Ness" on OS maps.

The rock here is a mixture of lavas, tuff (volcanic ash) and agglomerate. Mainly andesite, with mugearite around the Stuvva Cave routes.

Approach notes

Abseil descent for most routes. The cliffs drop straight into the sea; some routes require hanging belays.
