Crag features

A pleasant group of small crags in a sunny location with excellent views over the Arrochar Alps. The rock is clean and sound but protection is scarce making for exciting climbing. The crag dries fast.

In winter there are a few very short gully and ridge climbs.

Approach notes

Park at Butterbridge, climb over a gate, left over another gate, then up the hillside turning right over the shoulder to the corrie in about 1 hour.

A comment on the photo. In truth this is tilted, this part of the crag not nearly as steep as it might suggest.There are winter routes on the hill too, and you are pretty much guaranteed solitude.Nice views back towards Beinn and Lochain from the approach.
