Polney offers a good selection of excellent moderate climbs with a couple of good technical test pieces for good measure. This is the easiest crag to reach with some parts of it being only a few feet from the old A9 road.

Getting There 

Drive through Dunkeld, and follow the road around to the it goes left. Keep on the main road and park, either below the Main Cliff (possible to park up off the road, cliff side), or continue for 200 ft and park below Ivy Buttress.

Pull up from the good hold at the start to gain a small crimp for your right hand. Pinch the arete with your left hand and whip your feet onto the starting hand hold and slap up for the under cling.Now you are in the groove, the difficulties ease a bit, as you stem up the groove towards the capping overhang.Make some more hard move to pass the overlap, and sink you hand into the good crack above.Polneys best hard route....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
