Corrie an t-Sneachda provides possibly the most accessible winter climbing in Scotland (apart from Meall Gorm in Applecross), being 45 minutes walk (if you're fit!) from the Cairngorm Ski area.
Hard mixed routes come into condition early in winter season.
Very popular with winter skills courses. Expect queues and falling climbers at weekends.
June 2017 - Extreme caution advised if climbing on or below Fingers Ridge as there is a brand new freshly split suitcase sized block that's pulled away at the top of the slabby corner of pitch 3. I just managed to stop it trundling and crushing me and my client below. It's really just ready to go with the slightest bit of pressure. I couldn't safely trundle it without endangering my client and walkers on the path below. I'll try to get back up later to remove it or if someone else can, in the next week or so. Please share with your climbing buddies.
