Crux pitch of Secretaries' Super-Direct (HVS 5a) © Dave MacLeod

Crag features

This complex area of crags offers some of the finest roadside cragging in Scotland, with plenty of accessible slabs throughout the grades and some good steep walls and cracks.

Approach notes

Try not to park in passing places.

Climbed there on 22/04/15 and two Barn Owls flew out of a crevice in the rock just below the tree belay on pitch two. Possibly nesting, please be aware. Cheers
TILLY - 24/Apr/15
If the leaves are out (i.e summer) you'd better be ready to bushwhack about a bit to find your crag. A good venue but maybe not quite 'roadside' due to crashing about in hillside woodlands.
I am the God of Strathyre - 28/May/05
Great crag with excellent routes in most grade. However, Pine Wall is over graded in quality and difficulty. Tip: Put midge repelent on your ankles if your not wearing socks.
