Over the past few months, a team of keen Scottish boulderers, developers, documenters, and local heroes, including some UKB regulars and lurkers, have been putting together a new site to document the goings on in Scottish bouldering.
Since the demise of ScottishClimbs, there hasn't been a central hub for collating information on new problems, new areas, and significant repeats. ScottishBloc aims to be that hub. Sites like North Wales Bouldering and Lakesbloc have been instrumental in the development of both bouldering and the community in those areas, so we're bringing that grassroots community psyche to Scottish bouldering!
We plan on publishing regular news items for the different areas of Scotland, generally in short-form writing accompanied by photos and videos. We also aim to store new topos on the site too, with a database of crags. We'll also be hosting longer-form articles, and hope to become a creative space within the community, promoting writing, photography and artwork related to Scottish bouldering.
We've just launched with our first news item - the latest bouldering updates from the Clyde area, written by John Watson, so check that out here!
