Master Angus Wall

(9 routes)

This is a lovely small sheltered crag with a northern aspect. It is located in the base of the Margaret's Landing stream on the southern side. The rock is compact and offers a number of short routes of a range of grades under 20. Walk of is easy, either dropping down a short gully to the east or traversing down the route (cairned) through the bluff to the upper (western) side. About 10 routes were pioneered here in April 2105

  Okay moves with good cam placements. Then a hard move up to a finger crack that takes micro cams. Then a hard move (crux) past this to top out to the right.

  Easy moves then climb through bulge on its left hand side and finish up steep overhanging rock on fantastic jugs. There is a natural thread for protection here. The route tops out at the highest point of the wall.
