Summit of this hill

This summit is listed in Munros, Marilyns, El-mo hill lists.

Hill features

Three extensive cliffs hidden from the nearby Bridge of Orchy road provide excellent winter climbing and give reliable conditions given a half decent snow cover. Two large buttresses - North Buttress and West Buttress both feature classic routes like Taxus (III) an excellent gully climb, West Buttress (III) and Menage a Trois (V). 

Approach notes

From the carpark at Achallader Farm cross the river and walk up a path bearing right past a cone shaped hillock into the corrie in about 1.5 hours.

Sorry, There are no Route Cards associated with this hill
Anyone got an up to date topo? The old Ochills one appear to be broken. Cheers, D.
