Graded VS 4c, translates to 5.8 US. Probably the most popular route in this grade in the Burren so starting to get a bit polished. Two mantleshelf type moves at the start then follow a leftwards trending crack. Strenuous at the top. Support the Irish Mountaineering council and buy a local guide book for the full description and location

Descent Options:

You need to descend from the road to the start of the routes first, head towards the sea, bearing left until the cliff gets smaller then scramble down using a bit of rope left in place.
