A north facing curving cliff down Glen Orchy with a lower tier of quartzite and an upper tier of schist. A series of springs flow naturally over the cliff edge and in a good freeze impressive ice flows build up giving ice routes up to 100m in height. Quartzvein Scoop(IV), Sunshine Gully(III) and The Smirk(V) are all 3-star ice routes.

Approach notes

Form the single track Glen Orchy road park where the Allt Diamh stream joins the road and walk up the stream bank to the cliffs in about 1 hour.
