Lower Diabaig is situated 21 miles West of Torridon in the North West Highlands. Here, in this isolated spot is a brilliant dome outcrop of perfect Gneiss sporting excellent routes upto 100m long. There are few routes below VS grade but if you are operating in the E grades this place is just brilliant. Its not exactly a short drive from Fort William; but yesterday Joe, Colin and I made the long journey looking for an adventure.
We enjoyed 3 routes, 7 pitches and 10 stars of climbing all in a spectacular setting on the best rock ever! If you haven’t been to Diabaig then I cant recommend it enough, it is worth every minute of travel and every bit of skin left behind. I will let the picture do the talking…..We climbed Route Three (E1,4b,5b,5a), The Black Streak (E1,5c,5b) and Northumberland Wall (E2,5c,5c)
