Climbing at The Whangie and Neilston Quarry - June 2011

While the weather was good we decided to take a trip up beyond Milngavie to do some climbing on the Whangie. It's a 30-40 minute trudge from the car park to the crags. Once there the climbing is quite limited and not a good place to climb if you like to place alot of protection.

Somewhere closer to home where the protection is more plentiful is Neilston Quarry. This is a great little stretch of crags for both trad climbing beginers and those looking to get their hands on real rock away from the indoor walls. The recorded routes are up to around 6a in difficulty, but by varying these routes and traversing the walls you can make it as difficult or as easy as you require.
