Upper Cove

Climbs 73 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 627m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
Less continuous than its lower neighbour, Upper Cove nevertheless offers a selection of very good routes across a line of south-facing buttresses. Like Slieve Beg, it suffers unjustified neglect because of its comparatively lengthy approach.

Access notes
Allow 1.5 hrs to walk in up the Annalong Valley.
