Crag features

Good quality, quick-drying gneiss crags, with some amazing rough rock and plentiful routes in the HS - E3 range.

Approach notes

Park at the green hut, walk along the good path/track southwards for 1/2 mile or so until a shallow valley leads down left, a short way after the path switchbacks. Follow this down over the river by an abandoned bridge, and a small trail winds rightwards and steeply upwards to the crags.

All the sport routes belong on Creag Nan Cadhag - http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=19310 - and should be moved there and deleted off Stone Valley.
