Bouldering in Moville

Date: 20th March 2005
Submitted by: Columba McLaughlin
A brief family outing along the coast path between Moville and Greencastle gave a pleasant surprise as to the number of bouldering problems in all grades. Simply step off the path and up you go. Alan and Marty might be interested in knowing that one boulder resembles a mini Napes Needle - but not of the same quality.

There is something for every body and the bouldering is more fun than serious. Some routes are very easy but there are a few routes that require respect. Protection seems to be poor but a number of boulders and a side wall gave me a good outing while Deirdre and the kids took in the sun and the sea breeze.
