Description

A fine area of sandstone walls and roofs up to 4m high and a shallow cave. The upper tier has a 15m long overhanging wall finishing in a small cave. The wall is a little dirty with seepage being a problem after prolonged wet weather. The landings slope away from the wall so securing mats with cord is advisable, a spotter is also needed.

The lower tier wall is about 20m long, very clean and of excellent quality with a good range of problems of varying styles and difficulty. It is less prone to seepage and is only affected by very heavy sea swell. The landings are less sloped than the upper tier but secured mats and a spotter is still advisable.

Access

Take The A970 south from Lerwick for 17 miles, Levenwick is a small village situated on the east coast above a small bay with a beautiful white sandy beach, clearly visible from the main road. Take the first turning into the village and follow signs for the beach, parking in the small car park. From here walk eastwards between the beach and the cemetery and over the small headland. The bouldering is at the base of the large slabs.
