An outstanding gabbro cliff high in Coire Lagan beneath the peak of Sgurr Alasdair in the Cuillin, Skye. There are routes at all grades from moderate (M) to E8 (The Gathering)! The cliff is also home to one of Scotland's more famous climbing landmarks, the Cioch block, as seen in countless photographs and at least one Hollywood movie.
