Mount Cargill

(9 routes)

It's best to go when it has been dry for at least a few days and there is no mist on Mt Cargill. If you have one, take a second rope so that you can abseil to the base of the crag. The right hand anchor, seen as you walk down towards the crag, is the easiest for descent. A carpet square or a towel might come in handy if conditions are damp.
