The first pinnacle you come to after leaving the padlock

Access issues inherited from Shawthing Rocks

You will need to be a bit organised to climb at Shawthing Rock… Ring/text at least a day before to book in (not after 9pm please), it’s a working farm; there may be hazards to tell you about.

• Access is a privilege. Not a right.

• Probably closed in the wet winter months.

• No dogs, no shooting. The normal stuff!

• Follow the leave no trace guide- so take all your rubbish (Including biodegradable) out with you.

• Only one group per day.

A good beginners lead. DBC

Gaelic for "very nice". Climbs the face on the south side of the pinnacle, balance-y moves lead to the thin arete, then mostly easier to the top. DBC.
