This complex area of crags offers some of the finest roadside cragging in Scotland, with plenty of accessible slabs throughout the grades and some good steep walls and cracks. Three of the best crags in the area are:

Pine Wall Crag: The crag is the very obvious butress in the centre of 'The Alp'. The prominent feature is a large Caledonian Pine tree near the top, directly above the 150ft ridge. With eight fantastic routes of Moderate to HVS, this is the perfect crag to spend a day or two learning how to trad climb, with groups or families, on easy well protected routes.

Pinnacle Ridge: Not really a ridge, the shape of the rock gives the crag its name. With classic trad routes ranging from Diff to E5, this crag is a brilliant venue for first-time trad climbers. With well-protected easy routes, this is a perfect venue for small groups and families to get a taste of classic Scottish trad.

Styx Buttress: The crag lies directly to the right of Pine Wall. The front face is slabby while the left wall forms a small overhang. With this great variety of climbing styles and grades of VDiff to high Es, this area is perfect for entry level trad climbers to more experienced climbers looking to develop their skills and push themselves.


Follow the C1162 east through Glen Nevis past the Glen Nevis Self-Catering Park. Park in the car park just over the bridge over the river. Pinnacle crag is the obvious crag on the right of the outcrop in the trees.

What to be aware of:

  • Caution for loose rock
