Main Crag

The Terrace Wall

Right of Broad Crag Gully, and at a higher level, is an imposing, castellated wall 40 metres high and seemed with cracks/grooves. There are a dozen or so strong lines here and the place has a pervasive forboding atmosphere; all rather "Cloggyish"!

Access is easiest from above, down rough slopes on its left (looking-out).

North-West Flank

This flank, which faces Great Gable, consists of a large area of rock split by a stepped grassy gully, (GR 217 077).
The right-hand buttress comprises of slabs leading to a steep headwall. The left-hand buttress has the same format, but is more impressive. Indeed, climbers seeking a mini, more convenient Creag an Dubh Loch style adventure may be advised to take a look!
The routes recorded here are very much flanking attacks, but give an insight into the potential!
