Borland - Roadside Crag

(2 routes)

These rocks are the first bits of granite you'll come to on the road. The crags are often used by school groups for abseiling and top rope climbing. A hand made bolt exists half way up a black slab. It is likely that this was the first climb in Borland, led with the single marginal bolt. There are 3 easy, yet to be named climbs virtually on the road. There are roadside signs for traffic to put up when using this area. A good place to practice skills.
