Rum Bouldering - Hallival Blocs


From the Dibidil path all the way up to Coire nan Grunnd under Hallival lie hundreds of the cleanest boulders in Scotland in a wild lunar landscape of volcanic scale . Pristine 'allivalite' rock which feels grippier than gabbro - salt and pepper coloured, sculpted for the climber, generous grades on ridiculous angles and some big lines and perfect boulders... I hope to get back in the summer with Hamish Fraser who is working on a complete guide to this astonishing array of blocs.

Looks amazing! I wondered if there was any decent climbing on Rum when I sea kayaked out there one April a few years ago. The perfect excuse to go back it seems. Good luck to Hamish with the guide.
