This guide introduces the climber to the bouldering around and within Glasgow, Scotland’s biggest city.

Surrounded by low hills with volcanic and sandstone outcrops, Glasgow gives the boulderer an excellent choice of boulders and problems, perfect for a summer’s evening session or escape to solitude on a day off. Including the classic collection of problems at Dumbarton Rock, this guide also features sandstone venues such as Craigmaddie, the popular outdoor boulder park at Cuningar, and new venues such as Cochno, Croy, and Craigton. The guide features an historical introduction to the bouldering heritage of a major city and how it has made the most out of its collection of urban walls, quarries, crags, boulder fields and more esoteric bits of rock.
