The short story of a new crag

The crag is just north of a ruined broch and Helm’s Geo, a narrow geo that cuts in the cliff. It provides varied climbing in five areas.  The 15m South West Corner looks
great, however the rock is slightly softer here and protection is less reliable. The Northern Slab provides low grade 6-8m routes. The Point has three 6m routes. The South Wall provides 10-12m mid-grade routes either side of the arch that are more strenuous than they look. The 10m East Wall provides a steep wall of generally good rock, although protection can be spaced on the harder routes. The steepest section is undercut along the whole length.


Park opposite the second to last property at the end of the road at Southpunds (HU 409 197). Walk south through the gate. Cross the stile at the bottom of the field and head to the coast cutting south of the Loch of Levenwick. In wetter conditions detour further south to avoid the wetter more direct approach.
