PINFOLD AREA


he hugely varied climbing experience available along the Pinfold escarpment has always been in the shadow of the more easily seen Dinbren and the better known Craig Arthur. However the quality and number of routes in all grades makes Pinfold a top destination, providing an excellent venue for teams of mixed ability or those looking for some superb sport or traditional climbs, both hard and easy. Pinfold shares the same exquisite outlook of its near neighbours and has some of the finest rock and lines in the valley.
