The short story of a new crag


Ninian Slabs

These metamorphic slabs provide some interesting low grade grade routes which are all approached by abseil, or by a scramble at low tide. We don't have a great deal of info on this crag, but after a visit to the area (2013) we think we've found the crag! Assuming it is the right one, the crag is not really worth it unless you're in the area anyway. The rock and climbing is similar to Bannaminn (which is a much better crag!)


On the A970 south from Lerwick, take the right turn to St. Ninians Isle. Follow this south past St Ninians and take a right turn to Rerwick. Park at the turning area and walk towards the coast. A rusted old tractor marks the top of the slabs!

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.
