At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving. Please proceed with caution though.

Sandstone, just like Northumberland, and nothing like grit.

Went up this evening to check it out and rock was nice, but the approach and walk between the crags is very overgrown currently. The approach is through a really boggy overgrown field. Followed by another muddy area with several small streams running through and high ferns. Probably best to approach in Wellies, also might want to bring a tarp if using pads as there is a LOT of sheep droppings around the landings.

i like Craigmaddie but i find some of the lower grades can be harder that expected

Great alternative to Dumby (location wise). This place has friction too! Less problems, but there is definitely scope for some projects.

Very Northumberland-esque.

Arggg!The beasts! Many flying biting insects, take repellant and a stiff brush as its got rather mossy and overgrown since I last visited.

The pdf with access notes doesn't work, can someone update with parking details and access?
