The Coires surrounding the Cairngorm plateau offer magnificent summer rock climbing, and are transformed into a winter climbing hotspot with the first snows. Some of the best mixed climbing in Scotland is here, and often comes into condition early in the season. Easy, classic and extreme climbing is described in detail in this SMC guide, which features great action photos, crag diagrams, route descriptions and a hefty geological/historical section at the start. Going beyond the Northern Corries, this guide also looks at the the Loch Avon Basin, Ben Macdui and Lochnagar.
