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.

Some typos in climb names, should read: Poison Dwarf The Poison Trail Time Traveller (x2) Equinox (x1) Please amend, thanks.
