The Quadrocks - Low Crag © Martin Judd

Crag features

A great view and outlook over the Clyde coast with good sound rock. It faces west, so is an excellent choice for an evenings cragging.

Approach notes

Two options:

1. Inverclyde sports centre replaced the old shooting range with a new high carpark. They have installed an access path to Quadrocks that leaves through gates at the car park. This Zig Zags up the hill before leaving through a pedestrian gate level with the crags. This is by far the best approach unless you need to walk your dog then option 2.


2. Park on Bellesdale Avenue just before the Greeto Bridge Trailhead NS 21216 59329 take the estate road uphill past the livestock pens. After 400m, when you are level with the fenced compound, branch left on a new path winding north along the hillside. After passing through several deer fences this take you between the Main and High crags

If anyone found a green BD beanie hat here today could you please get in touch? I took an extra train journey to go looking for it and I'd greatly appreciate its return.

The confusion regarding sunburst red is due to the description of it(On here) sending people to the wrong area of the crag. Sunburst red is not a VS climb what people on here have been climbing is something completely different. Sunburt red that was climbed solo in the mid 80s is 5c. It climbs the wall between the nose and the traverse face. Obvious feature is the letter box slot half way up. I cleaned the route not long after it was first soloed as it was very licheonous.

There is confusion about Sunburst Red. It is at the right end of the Traverse face, left of the Nose. There is a small 'letterbox' slot 3m up. The VS wall at the right hand end with a prominent hole is Sunburst Blue.

This crag is quite simply outstanding for lower end climbers. Great rock, great gear!

The rock is very lichenous, not good for damp conditions. Excellent little place for a sunny afternoon.

The crag seems to take a couple of days to dry after a wet spell. Nice routes otherwise 30/09/06.

A pleasant day out from Glasgow (we used the train with no problems). Solid, quick-drying rock, bolts atop the crag for easy belays. With nothing too big or scary, this place would seem good for beginers (who don\'t mind the short uphill walk), and the unprotected E3 5b (\'THE arete\') seems strangely inviting...
