Crag features

An under-developed crag, with Rock Climbing in the summer and Winter climbing during the winter.

The summer routes have an intimidating feel to them and have seen very few repeats. circa 14 m. The classic of the crag, Wedge Route, fell down in winter 2011. El Lawrence and Every Step of the Way remain as good outings. Most of the lines are still unclimbed, with several exceptional routes still awaiting an ascent.

The winter routes are given Scottish grades despite their diminutive size, as they can be pretty spicey. Most of the winter climbing is on Buttresses either side of the main crag, but if the main crag ever came into condition it would provide some hard testpieces.
