Crag features

A remote mountain in the Fannaichs giving some excellent winter routes in a wild and impressive setting. Faces East so the buttresses can be stripped quickly - most mixed routes rely on turf so needs to be fully frozen.

Name means "peak of the white stones" due to the abundance of quartz blocks on its summit. Not as visually striking as Eididh (web) nan clach geala a few miles north. [Duncan Irving 5/04]

Approach notes

Remote. Possible restrictions during stalking - enquire locally (see guide book).
