Crag features
The middle of the Glencoe Three Sisters is a massive dome of steep rock with the East Face on the left overlooking The Lost Valley. The upper half of the crag is a steep continous wall meeting the summit ridge. In winter the routes are slow to come into condition and in summer they are slow to dry.
