A slightly longer approach than its neighbour, Corrie an t'Sneachda, makes this corrie a lot quieter.
Again - some excellent, reliable winter climbing - the steeper nature of this corrie yields some excellent technical mixed climbing and also very good rock-climbing.
Must Dos :
The Vent (II/III)
Y Gully Left Branch (III)
Centre Crack Route (IV,5)
Savage Slit (V,6, Severe)
Free access all year.
Be very aware of snow conditions in Corrie an Lochain. The 'Great Slab' is a notorious avalanche
black spot, and should be avoided at all costs should avalanche conditions prevail i.e. during/after heavy snow or thaw.
|Note that the name of this crag is actually "Coire an Lochain". Many photographs on ukclimbing.com that use this correct name are mistakenly hyperlinked to Stob Coire nan Lochan in Glencoe.|
