Where Mosque meets Pagoda © alan moore

Crag features

Steeped in history A'Chir has Arran's classic ridge traverse, the cliffs of Coire Daingean and the 8 pitch Pagoda Ridge all offering superb climbing and great choice.

The buttresses are steep and slabby giving good middle grade climbing.

Approach notes

Approach time: 2.5 hours

Think you'd have to go out of your way looking for difficulties to make the ridge traverse VD...?
