Crag features

The Boulders below the main crag are home to many problems (and a few routes!) of all grades. Bring all the pads you can get your hands on, landings are notoriously bad! The latest info on new problems can be found on the fairhead bouldering guide facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Fairhead-Bouldering-Guide-185295581595779/

Approach notes

From Ballycastle, follow the A2 to Ballyvoy, turn left at Hunter's Bar and follow the signs for Murlough Bay. The Middle car park provides the quickest approach (20 mins to Shelter Stone), however the upper car park is a more sensible choice in wintery weather or if you don't trust your car to get back up the hill!
