The small ribs of rock exposed on the East side of Fiacaill Coire an t'Sneachta (On your right as you walk in to the Coire); accessed by walking/scrambling up the scree slope. A nice approach and warm up to Fiaciall Ridge. Can easily be soloed or have easy belays set up with just a sling (plenty of useful rocks!)

Taken directly it can be a grade III climb, avoiding all difficulties can make it grade I.

Dan Ashwood 10 Mar Lead O/S Took the smaller rib to the left of the main spur as when we arrived 3 groups were just starting up it, also avoiding the brutal conditions elsewhere in the Coire. 3 nice gentle pitches of winter grade II. Seeked out a small chimney with a hefty chock stone on that, out of nowhere, gave a great tec4/5 sequence with some devine victory hooks, great protection and not much fall consequence. Just nice to have got something done with Robbie given the conditions and faffy morning.
