BIRDS NESTING 2017 Update 18/05/17 Please avoid the following routes from Fighting of the Vultures, Old man of Moy, Moy Bueno and Corvus due to Kestrels with chicks nesting in the crack just left of FotV.

Also the Raven chicks have now fledged so Black Streak Wall is now free for climbing.


South facing conglomerate crag that has come of age with plenty of great sport routes. Now more open due to recent felling and is a sun trap through out the year.

Using the Lavvy at Moy Rock

Can climbers please be sensible and do their latrine somewhere away from the crag as some corners are not very pleasent and there is a build up of toilet paper and faeces. Thanks

Approach notes

Park beside forest entrance keeping vehicular access free. Please keep to main tracks being created by local worthies including the Old Man of Moy who can be seen occasionally with a spade when the conditions are right. Be careful as he can be a grumpy old sod!

PARKING SENSIBLY
There have been problems with cars blocking the gate which is in use by estate vehicles - PLEASE PARK ON THE VERGE TO AVOID CONFLICT WITH THE ESTATE. THANKS

Restricted Access

NESTING RESTRICTIONS 

Update 18/05/17 Please avoid the following routes from Fighting of the Vultures, Old man of Moy, Moy Bueno and Corvus due to Kestrels with chicks nesting in the crack just left of FotV.

Information on nesting birds will be put on site and on this web page each year when nesting occurs so keep checking before going to the crag during the nesting period from early February till early June to get the latest information.

ALSO CHECK MCofS WEBSITE FOR MORE INFO
A popular sports crag with further routes being added all the time. There are trad routes if you are brave and boulders and bouldering walls about but be prepared for occasional popping holds.

Please avoid routes with tape on the lower bolts as they are still to be climbed after bolting by originators as the crag continues to be developed. Also other sectors are being developed so please leave any insitu gear and ropes.

Crux of The Seer is now much easier due to a 'new' hold appearing. 7a+?

Have just had a fantastic day here inbetween dropping the kids at school and picking them up again in Aviemore...so good did it two days in a row and completed 12 great routes with more to go at. Fantastic effort to all those involved. N.B. Although realising the development is still in its infancy only two signs at the crag to warn of birds, both with route names to avoid but topos for crag still poor. I and my partner have climbed for a long time but found it difficult to know where the birds are nesting as we could make out three seperate nests of two owls & a raven. Please could either notices at base of routes to be avoided be placed or a plastic not cable tied to the bolts to prevent access untill topos have improved and be uopdated. Would hate to have this location removed by RSPB on grounds of disturbance through lack of info.

Popped past for a look today (no rope or partner), good effort all those involved with the recent work at this crag. Really look forward to getting on it.

Getting really popular now. To help reduce erosion please use the low angle approach path that starts from the very end of the steep logging track. This is much better for reducing erosion than the old path. WARNING- Please be very careful when pulling out from the parking due to fast overtaking vehicles on the main road.

One of the best mid grade sport venues in Scotland. The routes are long and well bolted. This crag deserves to be really popular. Big respect to the effort of all involved especially Andy Wilby.

Conglomerate!! Who needs Riglos eh. Completely bonkers and very cool. Long and pumpy (especially on the impressive main wall) and quite hard to onsight stuff but no doubt a lot easier for locals who have it wired and know where the "good grips" are. Watch out for a slipper feel to some of the holds.
