Quinag

Climbs 35 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 808m a.s.l – Faces N

Crag features
This large and complicated mountian has several cliffs that give worthwhile winter and summer routes. Despite its height it tends to hold snow well.

The steep north face of Sail Garbh is an impressive cliff, excellent in winter but too low to freeze frequently. The climbing is often wintrier than appears from below though.

Access notes
About 1hr 30mins from the road.
