The guide covers the rock & ice climbs in this magnificent glen and its surrounding areas. Includes the famed Etive Slabs, the superb Garbh Bheinn and the more recently developed Ardnamurchan peninsula.
Glen Coe has long been in the forefront of high standard mountain routes, two hour's travelling time for the majority of those living in Scotland, and with unrestricted access granted through the purchase of much of the area for what was then the National Trust for Scotland. The rough lavas of the Buachaille and Bidein nam Bian's outlying hills provide many highly enjoyable wall routes, with the glassy granite slabs on Beinn Trilleachan as a suitable foil, while there are numerous classic winter climbs. Take the ferry across Loch Lhinne to Ardgour and savour the superb gneiss crags on Garbh Bheinn. Further on, savour the newly described crags of Ardnamurchan and escape the madding crowd at the same time.
