Glen Coe's most remote crag, with a fantastic mountaineering atmosphere. Relatively few climbers will be encountered here compared with busier cliffs in the Glen. Both summer and winter routes of quality exist here, with some good mid-grade winter routes often being in condition when lower cliffs are not so good.
The main features are as following:
Diamond Buttress and Church Door Buttress, split by Central Gully (an easy winter route), which is in turn split at the bottom by the rock tower of Collie's Pinnacle
Bishop's Buttress, capped by the West Summit of Bidean nam Bian.
Park just off the A82 in a small car park by Achnambeithhach. Walk a little way along the A82 towards Glencoe Village and climb over the road barrier and go through a gate at the other side of the bridge.
Follow the well constructed path upwards. Further up; head left across the coire to the bottom of the crags. Around 2 hours 30 to the base on the crag.
