The boulder [not] in the woods! © Robert Richardson

Crag features

A once well-hidden boulder in the woods of Culloden, this weird conglomerate erratic now stands bald and clean amidst cleared forestry. Problems are open to a few variations, as is the nature of conglomerate rock. Traverses of the NW and SW faces, and link-ups of the two, are the highlights.

Approach notes

Best to have a look at the guide on ScottishCLIMBS.com

The surrounding trees have been felled, opening it up to the breeze. It does feel a bit desolate though!

Tom Riach has grown on me. Have never taken a boulder pad as SW traverse does not require it - 'soloing' anything else is a good test of footwork. Better than the Inverness wall (you get to work it out yourself!).

An obvious remaining challenge is the NW Face traverse. Very fingery and sustained.

A surprisingly situated erratic, what's it doing there? A bit pine-needley and mossy in places, but a good wee collection of fingery problems.
