Go Further!

Jetty Crag is one of the best and most accessible rock-climbing venues in Wester Ross. The range of routes make the venue an ideal place for crag instruction on some classic routes.
These pictures were taken on Sunday during a go further session at the venue with Ken and Alistair who were getting in some practise ahead of a tackling a sea-stack. The most sought-after route at the venue is Anthrax Flake which takes an stunning line up into a scoop before pulling out on enormous holds up the line of a large arrow-head shaped flake. The route then finishes up less steep ground on smaller holds to a spectacular belay stance overlooking Gruinard Bay and Gruinard Island.

Both Ken and Alastair finished the day having tackled their first outdoor VS climbs with plenty of instruction in safe abseil technique.

Anthrax Flake – the classic of the crag.
