New routes on the Isle of Coll

Last week we spent a week on the Isle of Coll off the Scottish west coast.

Coll is a rocky island with some of the best beaches in the UK.  There is a mass of bouldering and a few crags that are worth roping up for…

 Good views of Rum and Skye beyond

The beacon fire

We climbed a range of quality existing routes and added some new routes, there were, and still are some great unclimbed lines on Coll.  The routes are on perfect quality rock and usually full of interest with a boldish feel!

3 of 8 new routes we did on the Isle of Coll last week. Coll has perfect quality rock and the routes are never long but always in a dramatic situation. Due to very few climbers making the trip to Coll there were still some great unclimbed lines up to about E3 5C.

 New E2/E3?…

 New HVS

 FA of the arete of ‘Lost Lands’ E2
