Please refrain from climbing outside

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.

Crag features

The middle of the Glencoe Three Sisters is a massive dome of steep rock.

Guidebooks

Any of the rock climbs here will feel quite adventurous compared to elsewhere in the Coe. This is not neccessarily a bad thing however...
