This summit is listed in Deleted munros and tops hill lists.This summit has been climbed in 45 logbooks.
This small east-facing winter crag was first developed in the 2010/11 season. The cliff has a short approach (less than one hour from Coire na Ciste carpark) and short routes allowing you to climb many routes in a single day.
Whilst it's still nowhere near as popular as Lochain/t'Sneachda, Cha-no is no longer as secretive as it once was. As such it's increasingly likely that you'll bump into other people. However, if you turn up with a mindset to climb anything (including unclimbed routes) as opposed to just the small number of popular routes, you shouldn't be queueing!
