Ivor and I were out sport climbing at Kirriemuir today. After a stop at Visocchi’s in the town for coffee and a quick bite we headed up to the crag. This is a very pleasant and easy access sport climbing venue with more than 70 routes from 3 to 7a+. The rock is a sandstone/conglomerate. Some care is required with the rock on a few of the routes and it’s worth considering a helmet for both climber and belayer.
The crag is very sheltered and something of a sun trap, so despite the odd very light shower we were able to climb most of the day in t-shirts. Bolt clipping in the sun after a visit to an Italian cafe… all very continental.
