Supercharger is the original classic of the crag, taking a strong line up the impressive headland of An t-Aigeach, but it is outshone in terms of rock quality by many of the single-pitch lines. While the crags face predominantly west, the many sectors offer a variety of aspects and degrees of shelter, and cater for the full spectrum of convenience to adventure. The majority of routes follow cracks and grooves, but there are also open walls, slabs and aretes. At its best, the rock is excellent rough brown dolerite, but there is also plenty of choss to be found here. More good routes have been added since the publication of the current guidebook.
