Top of Menage a Trois - Rannoch Moor behind © Andy Hyslop - UKC

Crag features

Three extensive cliffs hidden from the nearby Bridge of Orchy road provide excellent winter climbing and give reliable conditions given a half decent snow cover. Two large buttresses - North Buttress and West Buttress both feature classic routes like Taxus (III) an excellent gully climb, West Buttress (III) and Menage a Trois (V). 

Approach notes

From the carpark at Achallader Farm cross the river and walk up a path bearing right past a cone shaped hillock into the corrie in about 1.5 hours.

Anyone got an up to date topo? The old Ochills one appear to be broken. Cheers, D.
