Crag features

A small attractive wall in an idyllic situation with a grassy base and expansive sunny views over the tranquil Loch Voil. The climbing is good but the rock is Arrochar schist at it's most obtuse, with blind fingery holds and hidden spaced protection - add a full grade for onsight leads of most routes. There are some harder lines to go and the crag deserves more attention.

Approach notes

To get to Bleater's Wall, park in layby shortly after a house called Rhuveag (which is after Creagruie), then walk up through trees a short distance to the lowest crags; skirt around these to get to Bleaters Wall (the lowest *south-facing* wall), approx 5 min walk uphill from the lowest west-facing slabby crag (Bleaters is pretty much directly above it).

Bigg Wall is uphill of Bleaters Wall
