The central of the three Northern Corries of Cairn Gorm provides one of the most reliable and easily accessed winter climbing venues in Scotland. Its high altitude and northerly aspect allow its rocky mixed routes to come into condition easily. The relatively short approach from the Cairngorm ski centre, combined with plenty of good climbs in the low to mid grades, mean it is often busy, particularly early in the season. Although it is best known as an intensively developed mixed climbing venue, there is also a fair amount of worthwhile rock climbing in summer, including the classic Magic Crack.
