The Wabe, Glen Coe with home made ice axes! © Grahame N

Crag features

The middle of the Glencoe Three Sisters is a massive dome of steep rock with the East Face on the left overlooking The Lost Valley. The upper half of the crag is a steep continous wall meeting the summit ridge. In winter the routes are slow to come into condition and in summer they are slow to dry.

Approach notes

From the River Coe footbridge(173564) follow the path up to Coire Gabhail and take a path on the right after about 1km. This leads over grassy slopes to the zig-zag paths to the crag.
