This cliff is steep with many fine lines, all of them fairly difficult. The climbing here is arguably the best in the Glen.

The crag lies up and to the left of the approach path, above the Lower North West Crag

Getting There 

Drive up the glen until about 1 mile from the quarry, close to the end of the glen. Park in the parking lot on the left side of the road.

Climbing Season

For the North East area.

Weather station 14.2 miles from here
