Hen MountainCo. Down, IRELAND
Climbs 80 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 302m a.s.l – Faces all
Most of the climbs on Hen are single pitch, although there are some longer excursions which are no harder than HS. In places it is possible to climb the slabs almost anywhere at a similar grade, so individual routes are not listed. There are also far more problems and short routes than are officially recorded - the place rewards meandering solo.
The rock is generally clean and sound but there is often not much protection to be found (including for belays), so many of the routes tend to get soloed or top roped.

About 20 mins walk-in along the track which leads between Hen Mountain and Rocky Mountain. The uncool landowners strictly forbid dogs.
