Owey Island

Climbs 50 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude ? – Faces all

Crag features

Amazing sea cliff climbing on impeccable granite. There is a wide variety of routes from multi-pitch overhangs to sea stacks. Appart from the most obvious, stars have yet to be given to the routes but all are of very high quality! Plenty scope for new routing too.

Approach notes

Dan, one of the islanders, is happy to take people out on his boat for a small charge. Dan Betty the boatman's number is 0035386601389, and there is B&B now available on the island for those who do not like to camp. Alternatively, kayak.
