For many years the crags of the North West were the sole haunts of the few local climbers, who if they wished & they were capable, could climb a new route every day.
However, the secret couldn't last forever and now this Mecca of rock is available for all to use. With such a vast array of routes there are grades to suite all abilities & all within easy access - some within 10 mins drive from Sail Mhor Croft.
Local climbers Jim Buchanan and Paul Tattersall have produced a series of superb guides to many of the major crags in the area called 'WildWest Topos' they can be viewed at www.wildwesttopos.com and these, together with personal information on the local climbing areas are available from Dave at Sail Mhor Croft.
Guided walks, Scrambling, Navigation, & Climbing tuition can be arranged through Go Further.
The Winter scene is even quieter than in Summer.
I have spent many days winter climbing on An Teallach, Beinn Dearg, or the Fannichs & been with the only group on the mountain. No queues, just big Winter routes all to yourself. From the classic 300m grade 1 Hay Fork Gulley on An Teallach, to the 350m grade 3 Penguin Gulley on Beinn Dearg - there are routes for everyone. Resurrection & Emerald Gulley feature in the original Cold Climbs book & they are both here for your enjoyment.
