Cnoc an Staca

Sutherland, SCOTLAND

Climbs 11 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude ? – Faces W

Crag features
An unusual series of huge pebbly sandstone square-cut towers, blocks and pinnacles formed by land slippages, obvious from the summit of Cnoc an Staca. The climbing is first class and atmospheric, and includes some interesting subterranean scrambling through fallen balanced blocks. Features the offwidth classic 'North-West Eliminate' (E5 6a).

Access notes
After the steep rise above Sheigra's North Geo, follow the cliff edge path until a drystane dyke is reached, which leads up the final slope to the summit of Cnoc an Staca.
