Hill features

The mighty blade of Am Basteir is a classic Cuillin summit, but its status as a climbing venue is compromised by the rock quality of its shattered dykes. The fiercely steep chimney line of Hung, Drawn and Quartered (E3, VIII) is the obvious highlight, both in summer and winter. The Basteir Tooth is the wild feature jutting out west below the summit. This offers much sounder gabbro, with the exposed classic Naismith's Route (S) and steeper modern offerings such as Captain Planet (E4) and An Inconvenient Tooth (E8).
