The Cobbler, South Peak Argyll and Bute, SCOTLAND
Climbs 50 – Rocktype Mica schist – Altitude 800m a.s.l – Faces S
The South Peak has two different facets. The open and sunny South Face offers bold climbing on good slabby rock, though the less popular routes sometimes suffer from neglect. By comparison The North Face is gloomy and dark, providing some classic winter routes.
Several approach options. The fast but less scenic option follows a faint boggy path from Glen Croe up the back of the mountain. Alternatively, from the pay-and-display car-park at Succoth take the main Cobbler path as far as the dam. Either cross the river above this and follow the ridge above to the peak, or continue up the path until a left branch that leads into the corrie between the peaks.
