A good newly developed crag with nice routes ranging form 4 to 6c+, including a multi pitch sport route (2 pitch) and fine views over Loch Fleet. The rock is a good and solid conglomerate featuring slabs and some fierce overlapps. Some routes have some lichen but should become cleaner over time. The crag is all bolted with stainless steel bolts and hangers.
Note that you will need at least a 40m rope to do most of the routes and a 60m rope if attempting Ithaca which is the 2-pitch route up the whole face.
About 25m from the parking area by the cattle grid is a boulder with a few routes, if you can find it!
Park by the cattle grid on the Lochbuie road (junction just south of the Mound Causeway) just off the A9. Hike SW up the forested ridge, the crag will appear on the right, 20min. Do not get confused with the chossy overgrown crags just visible from the cattle grid.
In the summer the first part of the approach is covered with very tall bracken and is impassible without some kind of brush hook or pruning tool to make a path.
Alternatively, it is possible to take the well-maintained track that skirts round the south side of Cambusmore Lodge and heads up the hill to a small monument, from which it is about 5 minutes walking to the crag. There is about a 600m walk along the verge of the A9 from the Mound. This avoids the bushwhacking of the other approach, and probably takes about 25 minutes on the ascent. Some people are put off the crag by the approach.
