Crag features

The North Face of Gearr Aonach the middle of the Glencoe Three Sisters is an imposing crag on the nose of Gearr Aonach. Some good middle grade summer climbs are on the North Face, The North West and Upper North West Faces offer mainly winter climbing coming into condition quickly after snowfall.

Approach notes

From the River Coe footbridge(173564) follow the path to The Lost Valley and head right from below the zig-zag paths onto the frontal nose.

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