Ardvorlich Sports Crag © magpie
This well hidden crag consists of near-vertical steep wavy mica schist climbing, offering technical and balancy climbing. It's not an easy option for beginners with nothing below 6a.
Note that contrary to both the 7aMax and SMC guides there are only four lower offs - the one shown on the far left of the LHS slab doesn't exist!
Some of the lower-offs are quite far back from the edge so it's suggested you take long slings to extend these over the edge if top-roping.
Please use your own hardware if you are top-roping to avoid wearing out the lower-offs.
Also don't be a dick and steal the lower-offs. That's really not cool.
See http://www.scottishclimbs.com/wiki/Ardvorlich for topo and access info.
Being only forty minutes from Glasgow, and ten minutes from the roadside, this is an idyllic sport venue on the west bank of Loch Lomond. A knoll behind Ardvorlich B&B hides twin west facing walls - this is a few miles north of the Inveruglas tourist spot on the Loch (by the Power Station). Park in a lochside layby on the right just before the signs for Ardvorlich BandB (if you miss it, you can turn here). Cross the road and jump the fence, head uphill to the landy track. Follow this left underneath the railway, then back right uphill. At the first swithcback you'll see the walls across the bracken beyond the two burns. Head towards the double-pylon and over the two burns. Bash through the bracken to the crag in about five minutes.
