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.

One of the finest mountains in the country. Its classic ridge traverse is its most famous asset, only bettered by the Black Cuillin ridge.
Comprised of Torridonian Sandstone, its summer rock potential is not great due its vegetated and broken nature. In winter its cliffs offer superb varied climbing, with many fine, long mountaineering routes and hidden steep walls offering more modern style test pieces.
