The Cracks Wall is the most convenient of the crags, just two minutes from lake, toilet, and end of the trail. The trad climbing here is excellent with a number of high quality cracks in a tranquil location making this crag the first choice for most climbers. The rock is very clean and there is a high concentration of routes with an easy to navigate base. The rock stays shaded till mid-day.

Getting There 

From the lake walk back towards Kinloch for 1 minute to where a rock cairn marks the track leading up to the crag. The track meets the crag at the base of “Rohans Arete”. The crag is difficult to see through the trees.
