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). A topo for this crag may be downloaded from the OMC here: http://www.ochils.com/component/option,com_docman/task,doc_download/gid,49/Itemid,94/

Approach notes

From the car park at Achallader Farm cross the river and walk up a path bearing right past a cone shaped hillock into the corrie in about 90 minutes.

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