Climbs 132 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 900m a.s.l – Faces NE
Notable winter routes : Eagle Ridge (VI,6), Polyphemus Gully (V,5).
Should not be ignored in summer some excellent routes - an early season ascent of Eagle Ridge (S) provides a thrilling route in near Alpine conditions.
Check at Glen Muick Ranger station if in doubt.
Car park charge of £2 now levied by Royal Estate at Glen Muick car park.
Beware after heavy snow: most approaches cross avalanche run outs. Huge cornices can form, making late season exits problematic. Gullies, as everywhere else, should be avoided like the plague during/after heavy snow or a thaw.
Unique hazard is bumping into Prince Charles on the approach, who is known to invite climbers into his bothy for a 'wee dram'. Make sure you wipe your boots before entering.
