Local Crags

The start of June has seen us mostly at local crags either with clients; personal climbing or delivering Rock Climbing Instructor training.

The Hawkcraig, Rosyth Quarry and Limekilns

I spent yesterday (9/7/13) at a variety of Fife crags. During the morning Eilidh and I took a group from the Falkirk Community Trust Summer Programme to The Hawkcraig at Aberdour for some climbing. It was very hot in the sun at the crag, so in the afternoon we opted to go to Rosyth Quarry for some abseiling on a section of crag in the shade of the trees. The Falkirk Community Trust summer programme provides a wide range of outdoor activities for kids and is well worth investigating, as are their outdoor activities for adults.

In the evening a team of Eilidh, James, John, Nigel and me headed to Limekilns for some personal climbing. Limekilns offers some of the only limestone climbing in southern Scotland and although somewhat polished has some excellent routes.
