This cliff is directly South from Cairngorm mountain, and overlooks Loch A'an.

The crag faces south and has 2 main sections (east and West). The rock is granite and slabby in nature. The slabs are interspersed with some steep overlaps of varying sizes.

Getting There 

From the Summit of Cairngorm mountain head South. This will bring you to the top of the cliff. From here descend on either side.
