Sgurr nan Each

Isle of Skye, SCOTLAND

Climbs 5 – Rocktype Gabbro – Altitude 720m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
Often overlooked in favour of it's more famous neighbours, this peak is often climbed by its south-east ridge in approach to the classic Clach Glas - Bla Bheinn traverse. By adopting this as a means of approach, the bog and scree of Coire a'Caise can be rounded.

Geologically, the summit and west flank are composed of gabbro, whereas the east flank and south-east ridge are a complex of gritstones, shale, granite, and basalt. Basalt also appears on the eastern slopes, below the east top of the mountain.

Access notes
Take the Bla Bheinn path which follows the Allt na Dunaiche at the head of Loch Slapin. For the Bealach Buttresses, leave the path as it bears left and branch off into Coire a'Claise. The buttresses are obvious between two scree shutes in the col to the right of Clach Glas, and left of the summit of Sgurr nan Each. To make the summit traverse, leave the path at the same point and head left to the obvious nose and ridge of Sgurr nan Each, which forms the north wall of the coire.
