Crag features

Columnar Pitchstone giving good friction and features.

To quote the new Inner Hebrides guide `few rock features in the British Isles can equal the grandeur on An Sgurr'.

Approach notes

Birds of prey sometimes nest here but the cliff is extensive so it should be possible to keep away from them.
