Crag features

The climbing at Auckengill is spread over 3 areas with the south facing sea wall in the Quarry area being best and a suntrap if the wind is right. There you'll find a non tidal platform gives a good selection of starred routes in the most pleasant surroundings.

The seaward walls are pleasant and were a great place to spend an evening.
