Crag features
Cummingston's lesser-known sibling is still well worth a visit with plenty of good leads in the low-mid extremes, and a few easier routes. As with many coastal crags, a fresh breeze and a due respect for the rock are useful to get the most out of it.

Access notes
From the East (Lossiemouth) on the B9040 pass the Covesea Skerries Lighthouse. A small rectangular wood is soon seen on the right on the approaching crest. Go beyond the wood to another larger wood and park on the track immediatly before it. Walk up track past radio masts and lookout station.

Done 11 routes here now and generally they've been bloody good - strong lines and good value climbing. Had a day with a Northerly breeze and did most of the ones centred around the Boulders Bay cave, a few of them deserve an extra star.

Quite impressed with the crag. Just climbed around Boulders Bay. Rock was good and sound - not that sandy generally. Gear was generally good - a few run out bits. Routes were steep and a decent length. Belay stakes generally in place. All just bit better than I thought it would be. Recommended!
