From gyms and bolts to traditional climbing. Cummingston sea cliffs

Anna practicing her trad gear placments

Cold but dryer than the Cairngorm mountains at the sea cliffs today

This rock  shows the wind direction perhaps around 250 million years ago.The strata formed from layers of sand  which was wind blown into sand dunes and have since become sand stone.. The wind was probably blowing left to right.

Back then, the pre dinosaur times, tusked reptiles left foot marks as they walked over the desert dunes which is now Cummingston . There is some wonderful rock climbing on the ocher colored rocks.
