Kilt Rock, Isle of Skye

Dolerite sills are intruded into the sedimentary rocks of Trotternish from Portree Northwards and the better outcrops give some superb rock climbing on parallel grooves and cracks of the columns. The most famous is Kilt Rock and we were fortunate to have a rain free morning (almost!), so were able to climbed there today.

Grey Pather, a three star E1,5b.. the first ascent was by Ed Grindley, Noel Williams, Willie Jeffrey and Peter Hunter on the 9th July 1983.
