Hi,
The Sletts, just below the Lerwick Hotel, have got some bouldering and soloing on superb rock. They’re also about 50m from my house. There’s an little crag on the Knab which is also good and West-facing. The Ness of Sound (at the end of the road that goes to Tesco’s is also good but much bigger and more difficult of access. The best routes are all VS and above.
Slightly farther afield, 20 mins drive and 10-15 mins walk are Pundsar and Banna-Minn, both on Burra. Pundsar is a 6m Granite crag near Hamnavoe with some lovely climbing, (Stu Barton’s favourite crag). Banna-Minn is at the South end of Burra and gives slabby climbs, Diff – E3, 25m-ish. Both of these crags face West and are beautiful evening venues. I went soloing at Banna-Minn last night. It was immaculately warm and dry. I’m happy to go to any of them tonight or any night. My number is 07788454932.
