Moy Rock

Gill and I headed out to climb on some crazy conglomerate over near Conon Bridge today. Like every morning this week we woke up to rain in the Fort. I have recently realised that it only requires a forty minute drive east and everything is bone dry. Gill had to be in Inverness for four which is why we were so far east.
This isn't in any guide books as far as I am aware but the topo can be printed off of Scottishclimbs.com or here http://www.scottishclimbs.com/wiki/Moy_Rock.
To find the crag from the Maryburgh roundabout take the Ullapool road (A835) and drive about 3 miles westward looking out for a forest entrance with a footpath signpost on the right hand side of the road. The forestry commission have cut all the trees so the crag can be seen from the road now.
The crag is relatively new so there is potential for more lines. I don't know who bolted it but they have done a great job with their bolt placements and grading of the climbs.
We climbed Pebble Party (5+*), The Fly (6a**), Little Teaser (6b+**) and The Dark Side(6c**). All great routes but the later two being my favourite.
