Crag features

A sunny cliff with excellent rock. This cliff probably has the highest concentration of Extreme grade routes in the south-west of Scotland.
Take RP's and small wired nuts for the many narrow cracks.

 

The base of Thunderbolt route look like its had a a significant bit of rock smashed out the base by the waves, the crack looks to have grown quite a bit from the guidebook pic, I would advise extreme caution if climbing on this route!
