Crag features

A steep wall overlooking a deep pool in the River Coe just before the Meeting of 3 Waters. Very sheltered and fast drying and only 1 minute from the road. The crag looks holdless and smooth. The right wall is almost vertical while the left wall overhangs!

Approach notes

From Allt na Reigh descend on the right bank of the stream for about 1 minute. There are also routes further down in the dry gorge ranging from HVS "Squirrels Crack" by the Edinburgh guys on the 60's to some short stiff ones at the bottom such as "Sine Nombre"  Jim'l Fix it and Simmering Psycho were by local Davy Gunn


My mate dave parton led In Sein, brilliant pumpy E3 and I led Roaring Silence aother pumpy but more fingery E4. Both worth 3 stars a great stop off when arriving in the great glen a bit late too go to the big crags. Woody

Somewhat overgrown last time I looked. Worth a cleaning session for a low E-grade leader though..
