Creag Dubh, Newtonmore.

Creag Dubh  is one of Scotland's largest road side crags with over 100 routes at up to 100m in length.
it gives fantastic climbing on  mica schist with horizontal strata with flat holds on steep exposed rock with  spaced protection.
The views are superb.

Andy Nisbet on Phellatio (yes, we are not allowed to give rock climbs names like that that anymore!) Although A Ewing and  I McEacheran were permitted to on their first ascent in May 1965. Graded HVS 5a
