Snibe Hill

Dumfries and Galloway, SCOTLAND

Climbs 51 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude ? – Faces S

Crag features
The rocky south-eastern tip of Craignaw consists of a number of clean buttresses of premium-quality granite, unaccountably overlooked in the past. The crag is south-facing and all day sun (with a consequent lack of midges) and a lovely outlook are further bonuses. Wires are far more use here than on most other Galloway mountain crags.

Access notes
Approach: Either from Craigencallie up the Backhill of Bush Road until directly opposite the crag at NX 478817 in an area of recent felling, at which point it is possible to cross the Cooran Lane and approach the crag directly. The location of faint goat tracks across the moor tend to indicate the best places to cross the otherwise deep and sinister Cooran Lane (1 hour by bike, 1 1/2 hours on foot). Alternatively from Loch Trool by way of Loch Valley (1 1/2 hours).
