Although no longer Scotland's Premier Sport Climbing area the Ogle valley still holds an attractive selection of mainly short, powerful sport climbs. Some of the crags especially on the Dark Side are little visited these days which is a shame as many gems lie hidden on the hillside. What you get with Glen Ogle is generally steep, often excellent climbing on fairly spaced bolts. At the time of writing (June 2010) some of the bolts on the wetter crags are in a questionable condition and careful inspection is recommended.
Expect a fair bit of bushwacking between buttresses if coming in high summer especially on the Sunny side as the bracken is relentless in its growth!
Good bouldering can be found spread across the area.
Nesting bird update: Mirror wall has birds of prey nesting. Avoid!
Darkside: Park at the rough laybe directly opposite the viaduct and crags. Follow the path downhill to a log bridge, keep going downhill through ferns then up clearer, steeper ground to the viaduct. Under this, over fence, follow a faint trail beneath the boulders, then wade up ferns to the crag. 15 mins.
