Creag Dhubh Multi-Pitch Climbing Experience


The largest and finest roadside crag in Scotland offers up routes of 100m on its notoriously bold walls. Quick access and abseil descents means a lot of routes can be completed here in a single day. 


The schist with horizontal strata offers some wonderfully steep routes on big holds. Many of these routes are up to 3 pitches and can be intimidating, as they are very exposed and protection may be spaced.

Additional information 

Single day experiences typically start at 9am and finish at 4:30pm. Please note that remote crags or long routes require the experience to start earlier and finish later than this. You may climb one long route or several shorter routes in a day, dependant on ability and time. You will be guided on the routes by an independently qualified, fully insured and competent Rock Climbing and Mountaineering Instructor. The instructor will choose routes based on your experience, fitness and preferences and will aways try to give you several options. All climbing equipment required for the route and instruction on its use is included. Clients may use their own equipment following an inspection by the Instructor. Clients must ensure they bring appropriate clothing as listed on our kit list page. In case of dangerous weather conditions an alternative activity or a full refund will be offered. Please read our Terms and Conditions for further information.
