About Main Area:

Some of the best sea-cliff climbing in Fife with nice veiws of Edinburgh. Abseil may be required during high tide. This link may be usfull (http://www.ybw.com/weather/)
As this is a sea cliff the rock may be loose and may break off. also the state of the protection may change. all routes are trad requring a full trad rack there are no fixed anchors at the top.
The Routes are listed from west to east (left to right) along the crag and there is a diagram for the crag. the Grade is given in the title because some of these routes can be misleading if given in the yds system (anyway the brit system is better <:P >)
A word of advice; the British system (basically) tells you about the quality of the pro on the route. A route with a high adjective (the letters like (VS E2 etc) grade and a low technical grade (the number) are scary mostly due to the reason that they are hard to protect. Whereas other routes that have low adjective grades and high technical grades are not as scary mainly because they are easier to protect. If in doubt see

/resources/training/grade2.html
There is also a star rating given which tells you about the quality of the route and has nothing to do with the pro. Three star routes are better than no star routes however that is not to say that the no star routes are not worth climbing
