Proper winter climbing @ Farr © Fiend
A good mid-grade boulder of clean and rough gneiss, only two minutes from the road. Technical problems and decent landings.
Drive through Farr towards Brin. After about half a mile take a left towards Garbole. After a few hundred metres park on the right by a forestry entrance. The boulder was visible from the road, but as of 2018 the plantation has regrown around it, making it potentially difficult to find - but it is only a minute or two from the entrance.
|Quite obviously the SECOND best single boulder after the Ruthven Boulder, but still an excellent must-visit bloc. Awesome rock and good technical problems to complement Ruthven's burliness.|

|the best single boulder in strathnairn, wonderful featured rock and a dozen or so quality problems make this an essential add on to a brin trip, oh and its fast drying and relatively midge free|
