The short story of a new crag


The Knab

The Knab is another crag that's only really documented because it's in Lerwick! That said, its a bit disappointing walking round this area that there aren't more routes! There are a few areas that have been climbed and it's well worth an evening - the rock can be great. It's also been used as a club top-rope crag a few times, again good as its so central.


If driving, follow the main road past Victoria pier, round and up the hill. At the mini-roundabout go straight on (signposted) and park at the end by the pitch and putt course. A path follows the cliff although the cliff edge is mainly blocked off with stone walls and fences. The many dog-walkers' benches are well bolted down if you need an easy ab-point!


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.
