Dumbarton Rock is one of the closest climbing venues to Glasgow and holds historic status, not just with Historic Environment Scotland (who look after Dumbarton Castle – well worth a visit!) but also in the hearts of climbers.
Dumby boasts sport, trad and bouldering crammed into one small patch of west facing land overlooking the Clyde.
It has become an annual tradition for Glasgow climbers to descend en masse to give the crag a good clean, removing any litter, broken glass and general mess so that the area is safe for all visitors.
We need your help on Sat 1 June. We are meeting at noon at the crag. TCA will bring the cleaning equipment and will provide free snacks and raffle tickets for all participants – to win some climbing goodies. It’s always great craic and weather permitting there will, of course, be time for a climb.
But don’t take my word for it, here’s Cobes with your call to action!
If you’ve never been to Dumby before, this is a great opportunity to get to know the venue with some TCA regulars. Trains run to Dumbarton and the crag is only half a mile from Dumbarton East, so easily walkable.
See you there!
