About Allihies, Co. Cork:

This is a very pleasant small crag offering low to middle grade climbing in a beautiful setting. Access is easy and the existence of ledges means that it is easy to get around the crag. However, it is necessary to abseil into all routes. The most obvious feature is a large grassy ledge with a few boulders that is at the top of the Bull Wall. A ledge that is above tide (unless there is a swell running) runs along the base of the Bull Wall. The other sections of the crag can be located in relation to the Bull Wall.
Nearest town or city: Allihies
Directions: Location: The crag is half way between Dursey Sound and the small harbour at Garnish, about 5km south of the village of Allihies in West Cork.Approach: Initially, it is best to approach from the Dursey side along the Beara Way because the crag comes into full view from this side and the approach is more evident. On subsequent visits it is shorter to approach along the Beara way from the Garnish side.
