Aonach Mor

Highland, SCOTLAND

Climbs 100 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 1200m a.s.l – Faces E

Crag features
In winter the Aonach's provide great climbing and due to the altitude are fairly reliable and the Gondola makes access easy. Coire an Lochain forms a perfect bowl and features a prominent buttress (The Prow) and a series of grooves (Ribbed Walls). Note that cornice build up here is huge and dangerous!!!

Access notes
From the Gondola car park follow a path up to a forest track, turn right to a small dam, and then head up to the Gondola station (or take the Gondola to this point). Follow the line of ski-tows to the end and drop down Easy Gully to the crag.
