Corbie's Craig from the West © tlouth7
A surprisingly tall piece of rock which faces out over the Hermitage giving a great sense of exposure. The rock is well featured but gear is sparse. There is some loose and friable rock and some gorse on the crag itself.
A path runs through the gorse around the base of the crag, giving prickle free access. The path can be approached from various directions: from the woods below work your way up the slope towards the right hand side of the crag; from the observatory carpark head Southwest towards the right hand side of the obvious hummock. Go around the side, where a short easy scramble down beside Slab and Tower brings you to the base of the crag. Alternatively from the observatory carpark head South, then where the path turns right into a gully instead take a smaller path through the bushes on the right. Follow this across the slope to the crag.
|Loose and gearless. All routes are a serious undertaking. |

|This is an often overlooked crag on Blakford hill. It makes a nice change to the quarry but has a more serious feel about it. There is some loose rock, but there is also good rock to find. Corbie's Crag makes a good escape from the south of the city, and often Kestrels fly below you as you climb.|
