There's a good mini circuit (think a few smaller versions of the valley boulders) immediately behind the Cioch a Burb S. It has one interesting adult size slab mantle too which is about 6C climbed facing in or facing out, no tick unless you do both versions though!

Thanks for all the ideas everyone, quite a few that I've added to the list for future days out that I wouldn't have thought about.

We had a great first day out the other day at Rowtor. She loved scrambling around on the paths, exploring the caves, squeezing between narrow passages and mantling some very small boulders. She also seems to be particularly drawn towards large drops and had to be repeatedly prevented from trying to downclimb bus stop mantle  ::)
