Kirrie Hill: Sport Climbing

Kirrie Hill, just outside the Angus town of Kirriemuir is Scotlands best kept secret in terms of varied sport climbing in the easy to mid grades. Routes from f3-f7a. The crag is very well bolted and offers you the chance to push your grade, and well worth a visit if your operating at any grade below on-sighting 7a. The sandstone is soft and has delaminated in a couple of places, still the most of it is very solid. Caroline and I had a good day here on Friday, and I am now in the process of convincing Becs we should head down for a weekend. We completed a dozen or so easy routes on a lovely day. Compared to Weem last weekend the grades do massage the ego abit, still I am going to take the ticks! Only one other team on the crag, all day. I look forward to going back and ticking the crag, over a long weekend!
