Crag features

A few climbs have been recorded on the north-west face, overlooking Loch Hope.

The main feature seen from the loch is a wide gully flanked by two rocky ridges. The right-hand ridge, climbed by J.H.B. Bell in 1933, is the most obvious and offers 240m of climbing which is particularly good in winter but due to the mountains proximity to the sea good conditions can be rare.
