ND3648 : Preparing to climb at the base of the stack

taken 13 years ago, near to Whiterow, Highland, Great Britain

Preparing to climb at the base of the stack
Preparing to climb at the base of the stack
As can be seen in ND3648 : Sea Stack and Arch there's only a narrow gap between the cliff opposite the stack and the stack itself. Here we can see that we can get to the base of the stack by abseiling down the landward cliff and then jumping/swinging across to the stack.

Having climbed the stack the return can then be achieved by tyrolean traverse as in ND3648 : Returning from the stack or by abseiling down the stack and then climbing up the cliff on the landward side.

Here the team are preparing to climb the southern face of the stack which, whilst not particularly difficult, is a tad loose.
