Crag features

A fine mountain in a commanding position dividing Glen Croe from Glen Kinglas. The North Face features a two-tiered steep buttress The Monolith giving a superb 3-star route including Appoggiature E6.

Approach notes

Park at the layby near Loch Restil, cross the burn, and head up to the ridge leading past Kinglas Crag to the North Face.

This section needs a topo, I'm climbing there tomorrow so will try to get a photo topo. There are a lot of routes in the SMC new routes that need added.

The Description says Glen Coe when it should read a Glen Croe.
