Crag features

A low crag only really suitable for bouldering or soloing.

Can be green towards the pub end during winter months.

Area around John Wall is best with a high concentration of clean problems around 4b-6b.

Lots of the problems involve climbing up small holds on numerous breaks, but there is a mix of sit-downs, traverses, slabs, aretes and overhangs.

CD = Cameron Duff 2000

TC = Total Climbing 2008

Approach notes

No access problems- park along the top at several small parking bays.

There is a lot of broken glass around glen arÍte area
