This a location guide to the Sea Stacks and other adventurous rock climbing locations found along the Western coastline of County Donegal, Ireland. Collectively it represents the largest collection of adventure climbing routes recorded in the UK or Ireland. As a rock climbing guide it is still very much still in it's infancy with nearly 100 additional locations still to be added. The locations are listed starting at Silver Strand Beach in the South West of County Donegal and travelling North East along the coast to the island of Tory. The routes have been given conventional rock climbing grades. It is worth bearing in mind that most of these locations require varying lengths of sea passage to access their bases. Some of the more adventurous locations have been given the "XS" grade, this grade requires an adventurous spirit and a good sense of humour for a safe and successful ascent.
This on-line guide is is best used in conjunction with the free downloadable Donegal Sea Stack Guide, this free downloadable guide is fully interactive with all the online information and the U-tube films of all the recorded ascents of the stacks.
The Western freeboard of County Donegal is prone to very large seas rolling in from the Atlantic Ocean due to the North Atlantic Drift tide stream. A thorough and comprehensive knowledge of both the sea and rock climbing best practice is essential for a safe ascent and return from these very special locations.
