Climbed as a guided day out with Kerry Climbing. Mixed conditions - wet and sunny, cloudy and claggy- but incredible taste of the Irish mountains. Would love to come back and do Curved Gully! Incredible stuff

Lost out on rock/paper/scissors for being stuck in the middle, but worked out nicely as we swapped around in time to lead up to the finger. Moved together for most of it, great day out!

Solid adventure, hopefully next time it won't be pissing rain and we can actually get some nice views! Simul-climbed and alternated leads. We both thought the other brought the nuts, but we managed fine with just slings and cams.

Beautiful day for the ridge. We only pitched the last 3 sections or so, with most of it ascended by moving together. Really loose rock in a lot of places too. Topped off by meeting John Cronin (first ascent) later that day.

Grade 3 scramble, easy moves but protection - forget it! The whole ridge is chossy sandstone and falling apart! Solo'ed most of it as the gear we could place would have held a mices fart. Good, wholesome fun! Reccomened.

An interesting ascent after an impromptu descent down curved gully. Fairly sure we started at the heavenly gates and quite sure we ended up at the finger. Inbetween there was lots of loose rock and a small overhang much harder than VDiff making us question where the hell we were going.

Incredible. Soft for the grade. But immense exposure combined with great rock make for a fantastic route. Loved it.

Pitched it, which was very unnecessary, but a grand day out.

Moved together up it. The conditions were the kind where on the way in you decide you're not going to do it. Obviously did it anyway. Great day out!

Revisiting Howling Ridge for first proper Alt-lead ascent. Lead every second pitch. Much better conditions this time with amazing views, rain came in for a pitch or two but nothing major.

A return to climb Howling Ridge after a guided accent in terrible conditions. Much better day. We climbed in two groups of 2, alternating most leads. Small bit of rain drifted in for one pitch, but a dry and mostly clear day!

Great weather (really lucky) and a good route with the wife (over from England for a family wedding). Simple climbing but lots of loose stuff. Not really a 'climb' but a good top end scramble.

Guided climb, I was middle man on a three man rope. Absolutely horrendous conditions for this, no visibility, very strong wind and extremely wet and slippery conditions made this one a challenge, great stuff!
