Sugach Buttress, Creag Tharsuinn

Climbs 33 – Rocktype Mica schist – Altitude 770m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
On the north east ridge of Beinn Narnain this crag has a considerable amount of steep rock with high grade rock routes and good winter gullies. The buttress is split into 3 sections by Maclays Gully and by a grassy ramp The Rake from Upper Buttress. Winter climbing needs a deep freeze and overcast skys.

Approach notes
From the Loch Long head car-park take the Cobbler path until you reach the horizontal path and turn right, following the path until a small damm is reached. From there, strike directly into the corrie, keeping to the east of the stream. Alternativly, and more directly, park in Succoth and follow a good path by the stream which is next to the obvious bend in the Succoth road to reach the corrie.
