Anyone got any information on this crag?

Not the crags on the north face- https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/corbetts/beinn-an-lochain-1.JPG

I'm looking for info on the steep cave style crag on the east face, seen here...

No information, but I do remember wondering the same thing when walking up past them to go winter climbing on the (excellent) high north facing crags. I suspect, but could be wrong, that those lower crags beneath the hard summer routes Kinglas Crag will be a bit broken and vegetated on closer inspection - but maybe worth a look!

I'm not sure what the Slabby Crag referred to at Beinn an Lochain is, and don't have a copy of the old guide available. A Southern Highlands expert might come along with details.

Good luck.

From a non-climbing perspective, I've always loved this face. It has a lovely aesthetic, especially in a dull winters evening.
Looks pretty grubby to me.
Are there not caves up there? Sure I heard that somewhere.

Kinglas Crag is (I think - I'm no expert and haven't got the guide to hand) that the steep crag that is to the right of the path on the normal approach to the high crag and summit.

It looks like there are some starred hard routes there, that have had little attention in recent years.
