Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.
At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.
We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

|As a lot of people have already mentioned; the best approach is to continue along the track, as far as the end passing the dam and the bothy. Then continue contouring the lake by the shore along a good sheep track. Follow this all the way round, where the sheep track veers away from the lake on to very boggy ground (and towards the minor crag with e2-e5 routes) continue contouring faint sheep track heading for the end of the big spur and nearly and island, crossing a small stream and through bracken and damp ground (still by the lake). When you get to the spur, stay just out of the bog, contouring the spur, passing a small fallen down hafod. Follow the sheep path along and then right up on to a col on top of the spur. From here aim straight for the crag, in the direction on a big square heather topped boulder (sheep paths, dry). Then pass another big boulder and continue up on to the scree. Climb the scree to the base of the crag. 1hr?|
