I have been adding free Sport Climbing downloads to the gofurtherScotland homepage to try and pass on the details of the fairly continuously steady rise in the number of bolted routes in Wester Ross, new venues too compared to the SMC Scottish Sport Climbs Guide and 7aMax second edition

A new Sport venue has been created down near Tollie Farm, Wester Ross. Stop at the parking place for Creag nan Luch and The Perch shines like a beacon directly ahead, carry on to the end of the road at the loch shore and it is a five minute walk up once you know the […]

There are three new routes on the left hand side of the crag. All fully bolted and all monopolising the same lower-off. The routes on the crag from L to R are:

Little Dancer 5+ 15m
Old Degas 5+ 15m

Sport Climbing in the NW

On 14th June 2013 By

The Sport Crags around Wester Ross have been busy lately, people clipping bolts everywhere, all leafing through their pristine copy of the new SMC Sport Climbing guidebook. But it is already out of date. For info – there are three new 5+’s on the LH sector of Creag an Oisean, a direct finish to Ronald […]

So, in April this […]

Autumn Sunshine at Grass Crag

On 21st October 2012 By

What great weather the Northwest continues to get after such a wonderful summer. Grass Crag has the advantage of being one of the few Gairloch Sport Crags to get the sun all year. Goat Crag and Am Fasgadh are the other options when looking for a crag with a sunny aspect in the dark months. There […]

Return of Am Fasgadh Season

On 14th October 2012 By

Big Walling in Yosemite doesn’t prepare anyone for Am Fasgadh. Three bolts long, Warm Up just about sums the place up; desperate, technical, fingery and thuggish all at once. It was the second line Colin and I bolted up all those years ago and dozens of ascents haven’t made it any more do-able, today I […]
