Port Soif Area

This area contains several small outcrops useful for bouldering and lazy days in the setting sun (BBQ recommended!). The area is also used by youth groups due to the easy access.

How do I get there?

Routes on this crag

Salt ‘n’ Wound 9m (29ft)

The striking sharp arête of the crag: drive-in thrills for climbers and visitors alike! Protection is reliable and falling not entirely out of the question. Climb easily…

A pleasant but serious route following the pink vein. Climb The Winkler for a few feet, then follow the pink kinked vein.

Salamander 9m (29ft)

A climb with an awkward top-out up the vertical crack to the right.

Close to the Edge 12m (39ft)

To the left is an arête with a small overhang. Climb the slab and arête, moving right around the small roof.

Corner Climb  12m (39ft)

A good little climb up the large corner to the right.

Slipper  12m (39ft)

Start 8 feet to the right. Follow the rightward facing corner at the left hand end of the slab.

The Winkler  12m (39ft)

Climb the white-sided step, then follow the ramp over the pink vein and large ledge.

The Swinging Salmon 9m (29ft)
