A series of shallow geos. Central one has large platform with small pool on east side, access by abseil. Geo to west has narrow buttress in center . To the east there's a 30 meter long wall 8 meters high leading to a 20 meter high corner, with access ramp on east.

Quite a few routes have been climbed hear in the last year and are awaiting  a dark night with nothing to do to wright them up.


Regular ferries take you from Lerwick town centre to Bressay. Once there you'll need a car or hitch (4km). Drive South and park at the lighthouse. Walk steeply south east from Bressay lighthouse towards the bard for 2.5km. The area is bounded on the east by the burn of the Veng.


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.
