Fair Head (Bouldering) Knowledge
April 13, 2024, 08:20:48 am
Has anyone been to Fair Head recently? I note that the UKC warns of a landslide on the approach to the Murlough Boulderfield and recommends extreme caution, but I'm not sure if this is up to date. It would likely be a 1 - 2 day solo mission (not the best place for a solo trip, I am aware) so any current info on the approach would be appreciated!

Also any other info/paddable problem recommendations/etc would be also be great!

You could try dropping these guys a message, pretty sure fairhead is their local.

I was there in January, there has been a big landslip but access was fine unless it's got worse since then.

It was only a very short section of the approach.
