Bidean nam Bian Argyll and Bute, SCOTLAND
Climbs 53 – Rocktype Rhyolite – Altitude 1150m a.s.l – Faces N
Glen Coe's most remote crag, with a fantastic mountaineering atmosphere. Relatively few climbers will be encountered here compared with busier cliffs in the Glen. Both summer and winter routes of quality exist here, with some good mid-grade winter routes often being in condition when lower cliffs are not so good.
The main features are as following:
Diamond Buttress and Church Door Buttress, split by Central Gully (an easy winter route), which is in turn split at the bottom by the rock tower of Collie's Pinnacle
Bishop's Buttress, capped by the West Summit of Bidean nam Bian.
Scottish Rock - South (2008), Glen Coe (2001), Rock Climbing in Scotland (1990),
Out of print: Glen Coe (1992)
