Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

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.
