Fastcastle and the Souter

The Falkirk High Tops Team and I had winter climbing pencilled into the diary for today. However, as the weather and conditions for the Highlands looked very poor we opted for a change of plan. Instead, we visited the Fastcastle and Souter sea cliffs on the Berwickshire coast.

The crags were completely dry and sheltered from the strong winds. No nesting birds are currently present. We had a great time climbing routes such as Atlanta, East Arete True Finish, Plain Sailing, The Ordinary route on the Souter and Sweep. It is worth noting that the routes on Fastcastle unlike the Souter area are particularly adventurous and feature a lot of loose rock.

There is lots more photos and a video on the facebook page.
