Must Do Route :
Glass Slipper VS 4c
Salamander HVS 5a

Approach notes

Please park over the bridge on the left hand
side rather than at the end of the track? Just in case a few cars end up blocking access.
Mountain bike from road end to track below main crag. Steep clamber up to Creag Ghlas.

Be aware of sheep ticks which can be abundant.

A brilliant crag that deserves more love (especially as it's so easy to give them a quick broddle when abseiling). We gave Spoils of War and Hall of Mirrors a decent clean after leading. Victory Crack and Chameleon were fairly clean, but also got a quick scrub on the way down. The walk up is short but brutal!

The spike at the top of the first pitch of Hall of Mirrors is now gone. The belay next to it was good thankfully. Rather arse twitching at the time...

Walk up from the track is some of those tick infested country I've ever encountered.

Spoils of War and Victory Crack given a quick clean Aug 2013. Didn't spend that much time on it, pulled or snipped some tufts of heather.

Hall of Mirrors (both pitches, ab still good) and The Lizard both cleaned Oct 2012.

Brilliant crag with some of the best slab and crack climbing in Scotland.
