Hill features

Westernmost summit of the high Cairngorms. Usually climbed from Glen Feshie in the west, but the scenic side is the east flank above Gleann Einich, which is one of the largest (though discontinuous) crags in the Cairngorms.

In terms of climbing, summer routes are generally poor but there are worthwhile winter lines. A bike is useful for approach to this side!

Sgor Gaoith from Glen Feshie
