Summary

The quick-drying Craig an t'Seabhaig at the Pass of Ballater provides some brilliant, steep climbs on generally excellent Cairngorm Granite.

Popular with Aberdonians - excellent wet weather alternative if Creag an Dubh Loch and Lochnagar are shrouded in cloud.

Surrounding woodland provides interesting flora and fauna - esp. ants.

Description

Large south facing crag.

Must-dos: Peels Wall (E4 6a), Rattlesnake (E3 6a), Anger and Lust (E2 5c), Smith's Arete (E5 6a), Lucky Strike (VS 4c), Little Cenotaph (HVS 5b)

Approach

Park your car at the bottom of the crag in the small car park. Follow the footpath until you see a steep pathed slope. The crag begins at the top of the footpath. Stick to path as erosion is a problem.

Ethic

Trad climbing only. Respect the local environment and leave no trace. Make sure to clear anchors as there has been a lot of scrap webbing abandoned at the crag.
