The Drongs is a series of thin, granite pinnacles. They include a
30m-high rock pillar known prosaically by climbers as Slender
Drong, the 60m high Main Drong and the two smaller stacks, Slim
Drong and Stumpy Drong, both 15m high. A team consisting of Mick
Fowler, Andy Nisbet, Jon Lincoln and Craig Jones climbed all four
in a seven day period in 1992. All four stacks are rated as severe
to hard very severe.
David Henry Parry (1793-1826) drew The Drongs for Samuel Hibbert's "Description of the Shetland Islands' published 1822.
