Fiend feeling puny on the appropriately named Weakling's Wall, Brown Crag, Aberdeen © Fiend

Crag features

A steep wall above a non-tidal platform. Good, well-protected climbing.

Some routes are prone to seeping. 

Approach notes

If parking at the Bettridge Centre in Newtonhil, walk south behind the centre and go past the playing fields. After the playing fields, you'll encounter a farmer's field closed by a fence. Go over the fence and walk on the edge of the field (respect the crops) near the coast, until you've walked for about 400m and you find a large post by a big boulder (the fence is broken here). Leave the field at the boulder and head south down the steep hillside to reach the grass and rock platform at the top of the crag. Some big boulders provide suitable abseil anchors or drop into the small corner that is above Rock Lobster and good nuts and cams work well. 25m will get you down.

No Access Issues

Abseil approach required.
