A fine granite buttress high on Ben Cruachan with a magnificent outlook down Glen Etive towards Glencoe. The routes generally follow striking vertical cracklines and corners. They may be short (generally around 70 to 90m) although they still provide well protected, continuously sustained and technical routes. A reliable venue (a few of the lines do require a build up of ice), only requiring cold northerly winds and freezing levels down to 900m to come into condition making it an excellent early season winter venue. Must do routes include Toxic Brew IV,4, Tainted Elixir V,6 (made ever popular from Si Richardson's "Chasing the Ephemeral"), Dr.Noe VI,6 and Goldfinger VII,7.
Approximately 3 hours walk via the reservoir
