Crag features

East face of Sgurr Mhic Connich ( skoor vic con ich : Mackenzie's Peak)
in Corieacha Rudha has some excellent rock climbing.

Subject to Skye weather, and can take up to three
days to dry out after heavy rain.

Must dos :
Dawn Grooves VS
King Cobra E1, mostly for its exposition and atmosphere rather than the climbing (which is fine but not exceptionnal).

Approach notes

Access from Loch Coruisk side

King's Chimney is on the west face, not the east.
