The main sweep of pink slabs at the back of the corrie is Glaucous Buttress with the steep Bloodhound Buttress lying up and left. These two buttresses are separated by an obvious diagonal shelf - the Main Rake which is a good descent but can be tricky in winter. The other descent is to the south of the corrie, down the spur separating it from Coire na Ciche.
The routes Alpha Gully to B Gully lie to the left of Bloodhound Buttress and the routes from Crow Step Route rightwards climb the short steepening just below the plateau rim up and right of the main Glaucous slabs.
Routes are described left to right
Either from Linn of Quoich or up Glen Slugain from Invercauld. Both are bike-able, the former as far as the shielings under Carn Allt na Beinne (080948) and the latter as far as underneath Coire na Ciche (snow-dependent) if you are prepared to carry your bike past the steepness near the old Slugain lodge.
Parking fee of £2.50 if you use the Invercauld carpark at Keiloch.
