Crag features

Hard sport climbing area near Forfar. Slow to dry after winter seepage.
Most climbs well protected, short (15m) and enjoyable, although somewhat intense. There is a good bouldering traverse of right wall at 7b+ (french route grade)

Recent infilling and landscaping has basically buried the Left Wall and these routes have ceased to exist.

Thankfully the spectacular and intimidating Right wall has not been affected.

Must Dos :
Savage Amusement F7b, Shame in Your Game F7c, The Niche F8a+and when dry (rarely) Merchant of Menace 8b
 

Approach notes

Try not to block any access on approach track.

When using the newly installed steps down to the crag please avoid standing on the wooden retaining boards of each step to prolong their life.

Crag lush with man-eating nettles all the way up to the sky. Steps not evident. Bring a machete or a goat.

For Beta for some of the routes at the crag see this video: http://www.vimeo.com/15434300 cheers, Simie
