Craig Minnan

A forgotten, windswept moor with broken old crags overlooking Inverclyde, it's a good spot to escape in the high summer. I'd be keen to know if anyone has bouldered here - Little Craig Minnan, in particular, was a terrific  buttress with exciting problems over good grassy landings. There appears to be more rock in Muirshiel than I remember, as though I'd missed some vulcanism in the last decade or so. Buttresses everywhere... but sometimes the high contrast summer light makes them seem more substantial than they are!

Craig Minnan was my first taste of real rock when I was learning to climb indoors in 2003!

I just tried a few traverses and some of the easier and more obvious problems.

The walk, the windy moor and my very basic skills made it seam like a real expedition!
