Carn Etchachan and the line of Scorpion come into view © hwackerhage

Crag features

A good crag with 3 contrasting sectors. The right hand side gives long routes with a real big cliff feel. The lower cliff recieves less traffic but can be used to approach the upper tier. This last area provides some excellent snowed up rock / mixed routes. These are similar in character to those in Coire an Lochain but longer and with a magnifcent outlook down loch A'an.
