Left-hand Crack, Kingussie Crag © Grahame N

Crag features

Many routes on theis slabby, smooth mica schist.

However, tends to be hard to protect.

Routes up to 50m in length.

Approach notes

The route to the crag is no longer as the guidebook says; instead you follow signs from near the caravan park's entrance. Also, the belay bolts mentioned in "Highland Outcrops" are long gone - take some long slings to build belays round boulders!

Top area for top roping and single pitch leading. Grades for everyone. Great views of Strathspey and surrounding area. Best route there is probably The Groove. Pity it's so short.
