Description 

These are a collection of small to medium sized crags that are dotted around the fringes of the Highlands (mainly the Cairngorms). Some of the cliffs are worth a day or two in their own right while others are worth a visit if some of the other mountainous regions are off limits due to weather.

Getting There 

The A9 north of Perth provides access to many of these cliffs.

Make hard moves (crux) on undercut holds to get established on the upper wall. Once on the upper wall, continue up the thin crack above, which is thankfully easier.A great climb....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
