The short story of a new crag

A variety of rock types and quality with walls up to 65m, mostly single-pitch but a few two-pitch. Almost all require an abseil and commitment.


On the main road north towards Eshaness take the side road to the left marked 'Nibon'; continue to the end. 25mins walk south following the coast will take you to the first geo; the various walls continue south from here.

Sorry but you need to be logged in to the site to see routes and problems at crags. Of course it costs nothing to register and you’ll be able to see all! Thanks.


To add a photo use the uploader in the right sidebar. Make sure you include Nibon in the photo description so it gets added to this page.

    Al, in an effort to make orientation easier I’ve named the pillar that “Jerome” goes up “The red pillar” as that’s how it appears from the top. I’m currently working on some shots which use that name. It’s probably an idea to alter the route descriptions as it’s such a prominent feature of that part of the crag. Andrew’s directed me to “Beta Creator”. Halleluja!

    Andy, I’ve approved your edits just now, thanks for adding summat to the site, that’s what it’s there for! :)
    Glad you found Beta Creator ok.

    Andrew, having studied the descriptions, and the crag (I got out there yesterday afternoon to take pics), I’m none the wiser than you vis-a-vis the “Oblique Rays of the Sun/Black-eyed Biddy confusion. I can’t see any other lines of that grade so maybe they are the same. On the other hand I haven’t actually climbed on that part of the crag so maybe I’m talking complete bollox here…
