Crag features

Located on the east side of the north ridge of Drochaid Ghlas this crag is another fine addition to the southern highlands. The crag features quality granite and is well vegetated resulting in good mixed climbing, late in the season the crag may form ice, which is helpful for the drainage lines of Jamie's Lum and Tiger,Tiger.

Conditions: The cliff is in condition during cold spells from December to early March but is not as reliable as Corie Chat being more susceptible to thaw. The approach slopes are avalanche prone and should be avoided after a heavy snowfall.

Approach notes

Approx 2.5 hours via the reservoir
