!!!! Bolts Removed By Craig Adam June 07 !!!!

From a guide originally by Scott Muir.

This is the first obvious Buttress as you enter the Glen Lednock on the left with more broken crags heading up the hillside to the left. The rock requires a little care in places but will improve with traffic. The routes are generally steep on good holds, with great exposure. It faces South East and gets the sun until 2-3pm. A Fantastic winter crag only 5 minutes from the road. Resin Lower-offs. The crag has been extensively cleaned but needs a bit more in places. Work in progress.

Directions & Approach

Park Considerately in the layby just before Kingarth Farm House. Walk up the Landrover track leading to a small stream-crossing path. Just After follow smaller stream right, then right again directly to base of cliff.


Please check for bird bans

Climbers should bear in mind the MCofS advice: take care not to directly disturb the nest and climb on sections of the crag that are out of sight or to one side.
