Guided Rock Climbing in Glencoe with a Rock Climbing Guide

Agags groove, January Jigsaw, Archer ridge, North face route

Glencoe is a world-renowned area for Rock climbing and Mountaineering. The quality of the rock, the quality of the climbing, the positions you find yourself in and the accessibility make it a place that has been a part of Scottish climbing and mountaineering history.


Our Glencoe Rock Climbing Guides can guide you on some of Glencoe's most iconic routes. On Buachaille Etive Mor, routes like Agag's Groove, January Jigsaw, Satan's Slit and North face route are considered to be some of the best routes in the country at their grade.


Elsewhere in the Glen are classics like Quiver Rib, Archer Rib and the Long Crack on the East face of Aonach Dubh, high up in Stob Coire nan Lochain routes like Central Grooves or Unicorn are big 'ticks' because of their location and the changeable Scottish weather.


The west face of Aonach Dubh is exposed and intimidating but holds classic rock climbs like Trapeze and The Big Top. At the opposite end, the Etive slabs are easy angled but notoriously bold but are one of our favourite venues to climb at with classics like Spartan's slab and The Pause.


There are so many options at whatever grade you climb at and we can guide you on many of these classics. A day with a Glencoe Rock Climbing Guide starts at £220 with a maximum ratio of 1:2, get in touch to discuss your ideas and dream routes now.
