Summary

Superb granite climbing in an alpine setting.

Description

Routes and approaches vary for all. From large cliffs that host spectacular trad and multipitch routes, to roofs that will push you to your limits. Borland is a fantastic climbing area that easily rivals cragging in the Cleddau Valley.

Access issues

From early May to mid October, the road to the Borland crags is closed. Though winter here is not suitable for cragging due to seepage. But for those determined enough, a bike can be ridden up the road.

Approach

Approach and approach time varies for each crag.

Where to stay

Either stay at Borland lodge (just before the Borland Road begins), or continuing along the road past the Den and the Watchtower is a pull-off trending right. Drive down here and across a small concrete bridge will lead you to a beautiful area that will host numerous vehicles and tents on flat grass next the the river. You'll know when you find it.

Ethic

Take out what you take in. Don't leave rubbish, disturb wildlife, etc... You all know the drill.
