Crag features

Access notes
Directions: Approach from the East and a road now takes you up to the summit, courtesy of the Wind Farm. From Letterkenny go to Ramelton, go over the bridge and take the road on the left for Milford. Go past the Milford Inn Hotel (5km) and after 500 meters more take the road on the right for Fanad Head and Kerrykeel. Go straight through the crossroads in the centre of Kerrykeel and take the road for Rathmullen. After 700 meters there is a Y junction, take the road on the right for Oughterlin. Stay on this road for 3.6km until you come to a rough road on the right going up to a windfarm. Take this road to the highest windmill and plenty of parking. (GR C242 298) There are gates on the wind farm road but they are never locked just remember to close after use. From the highest windmill, follow the main path west for 50m then break left between two spurs up a faint quad track and this will bring you to the base of the crag. (10 min)(GR C239 298)
