Donegal Rock Climbing
The county of Donegal contains more climbable rock than the rest of Ireland boasting two major Irish mountain ranges, over thousand kilometres of coastline, one hundred sea stacks and many diverse climbing locations from the mudstone roofs at Muckross in the South West of the county to Malin Head, Ireland's most northerly point. Donegal currently plays host a lifetimes worth of world class rock climbing in some of the most beautiful and unspoilt places in Ireland. The scope for further exploration and the opportunity to discover unclimbed rock is unlimited, as there is an unexplored adventure waiting through every mountain pass and around every remote headland. At Unique Ascent since 2005 we have been exploring the better and lesser known climbing locations thoughout the county and have developed and recorded over 500 new routes in all areas of Donegal. We have explored and developed the Island of Cruit, recording over 300 rock climbs making Cruit Island the most developed rock climbing location in Ireland. We have played on the previously unclimbed Sea Stacks creating some of the most adventurous and atmospheric rock climbs in the country.
