Corrie Fee and Winter Corrie for winter climbing in Glen Clova.

Summer climbing in Glen Clova is restricted to the lower crags along the valley. Some excellent short (< 50 m) hard climbs are to be found on a variety of crags, such as Red Crag.

Must do's - Proud Corner (VS) & Red Wall (E1).

Has the advantage of being closet climbing to Dundee (!)

Approach notes
Possible restrictions during Stalking season.

(Sept - Jan) [disputed.]

As of 11 Apr 2011 there is an owl nesting on Beanstalk. It might be wise to stay off routes between Wander and Proud Corner for now.

There is an owl nesting on Monster Crack (Apr 14). Best to leave this route alone for now.
jamie84 - 13/Apr/14
worth noting I ripped off main [rather large flake] in middle of crux section of vanishing Breed 2 seasons ago. Would be considerably harder now.
mgeek - 17/Jun/13
Word on the street is that the good flake on Cinderella that is used to place the vital protection (pre crux) has now fallen off! Care must now be taken when going for this route as it has just got a lot more serious.

Does your comment about 'closet climbing to Dundee' refer to gay Dundonians? IJ
