Crag features

Neat little bouldering venue in a picturesque location near Rosehearty. Long small edge up to 7m tall with 3 tidal and 3 non tidal blocs on foreshore below.

The rock is pristine, the landings flat but rocky with some great lines up fine natural features. The main drawback is its remoteness, being 45miles north of aberdeen and a 10 minute walk. The good mid grade circuit and fine outlook should make it worthwhile however for those in the area.

The only guide currently available can be found at www.scottishclimbs.com. The ex-moderator, GrahamJ compiled a fuller record of routes in the area and maybe contacted for any info or development updates.

Approach notes

From the picnic area at the west end of Rosehearty village, next to the Coastguard Tower, walk west along costal path for 15mins passing through two gates. The blocs in the tidal zone can be easily seen from the second gate.

At all but high tide you can make your way down the grassy/rocky slope to reach the obvious Prow Boulder, the bouldering in this area starts here heading west.

If the tide is well in, keep walking along the path until almost at the gulch. Scramble down a corner onto small bouders on the west side of The Block. Once on the lower platforms the overall appearance changes significantly and assessing the layout becomes straight-forward.
