DescriptionFrom the parking lot at the head of the loch the slabs are clearly visible up on the hillside. From this distance they look both small, and very easy angled. They appear this way only from the parking lot.
The slab climbing at on these slabs is the best in the United Kingdom. Protection is adequate for the majority of the climbs, and the situation with the beautiful views all around is second to none.
Getting ThereAs you head west into the start of Glen Coe, the massive granite mountain of Buachaille Etive Mor is clearly seen on your left. Turn left following the road sight to Glen Etive before the Buachaille. Follow the road to its end at Gualachulain, and the head of Loch Etive.
Hike up the path towards the slabs, crossing over a couple of streams. At the bottom of the slabs a very distinctive coffin shaped rock provides a good landmark, and a place to drop your pack.
The hike will take 40-60 mins.
