Low Mountain incorporates Low Mountain South Face and Low Mountain Western Arête. The crag offers both single and multi pitch routes. Some single pitch climbs are polished and there is loose rock on the multi pitch routes, so helmets are good idea. The left half of the south face is sheltered in the rain and all routes between “Touching the Cloth” and The Pig Emperor” stay dry even in torrential rain. All routes are in the sun from early morning until mid afternoon.
