Glen Lednock, Creag na h-Iolaire

Climbs 36 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude ? – Faces SW

Crag features
A diverse and accessible granite outcrop with climbing varying from short steep routes on the lower walls to longer, steeper, and more dramatic routes on the upper right area. Good routes from VS - E4, the lower walls being more popular but the upper wall is much more impressive with some stunning lines. The crag is prone to seepage in the cracks, but is reasonably exposed and gets the sun all day.

Access notes
Drive into Glen Lednock from Comrie. After several miles the crag is clearly visible on the right. Park at the second cattle grid before the fenced off area. Cross a stream and continue up the hillside, looping left to avoid the bog (5 mins).

Grades on here are the SMC Highland Outcrops grades which are correct. Scottish Rock downgrades are widely rejected. Seepage seems better these days but then again we've actually had a summer the last two years.

Very stiff grading for softies used to Lowland Outcrops.
