Close to the road,this well-named little Torridonian sandstone crag is situated by the fence line running near the plantations outside Torridon village, on the lower slopes of Liathach. It is an easily accessible alternative for mid-grade climbers with a few hours to spare, and the routes, although short (8-10 mtrs), are pleasant with often fine cruxes.
Unclimbed lines from Diff to E3 still await first ascents.
Plenty of other small perfect sandstone craglets very close by.
Park in the same layby as for Seana Mheallan, just before the fence and cattle grid. Ignoring the tempting 45' heather bash to the former, cross the road and follow the fence northwesterly to the crag. 10 minutes.
