This very small island lies off the north-west tip of Pabbay. It is open to the full force of the Atlantic storms and has never been permanently inhabited. Almost the entire island is covered in a carpet of sea thrift, except for the summit and steep slopes to the south-east.
The climbing is centred on two geos. The biggest and most impressive is a deeply incised slot on the north-west coast (just a stone’s throw from the landing area) named Geigh Geo. The second (Linneaus Geo) lies in the south-east corner.
All of the existing routes were climbed 13-15 May 2000. Information can be found online on the SMC website.
There are no safe landings and even in relatively calm seas, access to or from the island can be difficult. The best landing is on the northern tip where several small geos allow some shelter, but only when the winds are from the south. There are no other landing sites.
Camping: There is no guaranteed running water and the only flat area for camping is at the north end above the landing geo beside a slight stream course (unless you fancy a windy stay on the summit).
