Crag features

Good routes in the HS to E3 range just above the dry gorge, easily seen from the Lost Valley car park. Only 10 minutes walk from the road - one of the most accessible crags in the Highlands, and worth a visit after doing routes on Gearr Aonach or Beinn Fhada. It's right next to the Allt Doire-Bheith crags as well, so a nice afternoon can be had at these two roadside venues.

The crag could do with a bit more traffic to keep the crack lines clean. The climbing is enjoyable and mostly well-protected, and the rock is on the whole solid.

There is potential for more routes on the right hand buttresses, although the rock there is more compact so a bold approach may be needed.

Volunteer to moderate Creag Doire-Bheith
We rely on volunteers to moderate their local crags. You would check updates and approve climbs added to the database. It's a very easy job, and all you need is a guidebook and an hour or two each month. [ read more ]
