Recommended routes for visiting climbers

Routes Which are Quite Good ( or possibly quite amazing if you ask me)

This is intended as a simple guide to the better climbs on this stretch of coastline. It will hopefully be of some use to visiting climbers or people who are new to the area. More definitve information can be found in the SMC North East Outcrops guide.

An important note for all visiting climbers: To get the most out of the climbing on these cliffs, climb in the morning with the sun shining onto the walls, many routes are greasy in the evenings

The Long Slough:

Red Death 10m E3 6b***
A sequency boulder problem leads to a large flake, sensational laybacking up the hanging groove above leads to an easing of angle and the top.

Black Rock Gulch:

Yellow Edge 10m Severe***
Lovely fluid moves lead up the centre of this short pillar, one of the best easy routes around Aberdeen.
