Rocktype Mica schist

Miracle Wall started as a toprope venue which was bolted because the routes are great. Combined with a bouldering trip to Glen Massan, this crag would make for a good day. This is especially true if you're climbing in the lower to middle grades.
The 10 metre overhanging mica shist crag is a perfect gem: good rock, good routes and a excellent outlook over Loch Ech. It has superb Heuco style pockets on Holyman and has a slab at the top of the crag, which in all cases is the crux for your head as the last bolt on every route is just below the slab and out of sight. Falls from this point are scary but very safe.
From Arrochar village head for Dunoon. Once at Loch Ech keep looking on the left side for a really obvious stone dyke wall. Park in lay-by (right after a sharp-ish left hand bend) before this and follow the guide to the crag. If arriving from the Dunoon side, drive to Loch Eck and pass a pub on the right, The Coylet. Keep going along the loch and on right you will reach the stone dyke wall. If the parking space is full another space can be found before the stone dyke wall. Once parked look on the opposite side of the loch and you will see a hut on the lochside, if you have a map the hut is situated at a wee place called Bernice. Once the hut is spotted follow the guide and get ready to get pumped on this deceptive little gem. Hitch-hiking is easy around these parts and due to the 20 second walk-in, it's a great crag to get to without a car.
