The Northern Corries Multi-Pitch Climbing Experience

Overview 

 

The three Northern Corries of Cairn Gorm provides one of the most reliable and easily accessed winter climbing venues in Scotland. There is also a fair amount of very worthwhile rock climbing in summer, including the classic Magic Crack. There are few better places to be in summer when sun floods the corrie.
