It's been really nice to see Rob and Veronica down at fair head every weekend. The psych is real. Really inspirational to see how dedicated they are to develop the bouldering scene here. Looking forward to the new book.

This looks absolutely brilliant. Incredible scenery and boulders - what more do you want?? 

Very keen to check this area out, also for the sport climbing which I've heard is being developed.

What is the best time of year to do a trip?

Rob suggested that Spring/Autumn would be best. I guess it could be different for sport climbing.

A shorter walk in! 

An hour and a half on that terrain, with 2 pads each sounds brutal!

Summer is pretty decent too. May june is the best bet for weather. It's really not as warm as England gets. We rarely get that far above 20 degrees.

You don't walk in from the Murlough Bay side. You walk in from Sean's farm on the prow side of fh. The walk in isn't too bad. Down the gully is the worst bit.
