This summit is listed in Marilyns hill lists.This summit has been climbed in no logbooks.
An impressive nose of rock on the hillside above Loch Fyne with excellent climbing and a pleasant view. The good is good and the crag is quick drying. Dominator Direct (E2) is a superb 3-star route up an obvious groove and Devils Elbow (HVS) is also good.
Note: The abseil point mentioned in the SMC guidebook at the end of p2 of Devil's Elbow is not there. Getting to the top from there is horrible (and the descent is not too pleasant either), so best go prepared to set up your own.

Park in the village of Furnace then cross the bridge over Leacann Water and walk up a track on the left towards South Craleckan. Just before a gate there is a sign on the right 'To the Crag'. This path crosses a small burn at the start then after a few hundred metres joins a larger forestry track. Go left then look out for another track heading straight up the hill. A good path system now leads up to a point about 100m directly below the crag.
Note: This approach info updated July 2020. The local farmer has requested that people do not drive up the track as the only possible parking space is used for turning.
