Carnmore Crag

Climbs 100 – Rocktype Gneiss – Altitude 400m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
A remote crag in a wild and beautiful setting with many superbly situated fine climbs.

Faces south and the gneiss dries relatively quickly. The lower tier routes are generally not in the same league as the many fine routes in the upper tier, except for perhaps Balaton.

Approach slopes can be tick infested so check well after a visit during the summer months.

Access notes
Very remote and best enjoyed in a multi day trip. The walk takes about 4hrs, cycling reduces it to 3hrs. Better still is to paddle across Loch Maree and walk in via the Beinn Lair col. This reduces the walk-in considerably.

No Access during Stalking (Sept -Jan)

Enquires at Inverin Estates.
