On Garbh Bheinn after climbing the Great Ridge © Mike Pescod
The south wall forms the upper part of the south flank of the Garbh Bheinn Great Ridge. Butterknife is the route most come to climb but there are lots of other good climbs that make the arduous approach worthwhile. Kelpie certainly seems a route to aspire to, with rave reviews from all ascensionists and there are plenty of routes at a more amenable grade to enjoy.
From the road follow a path by the burn to the bealach south of the summit. Turn down right to gain the left end of the wall and cross easy slabs to reach the lower level.
|Needs updated. While Sgian Dubh is given Vdiff in the Garry Latte Guide there is no way that this is the case. The Clasp is E1 in both SMC and Garry latter while given HVS on here. Definitely more E1 than HVS!|
