Crag features

Valley Bouldering on good rough granite. Typically very fast drying but can be midgey if the wind drops. Very picturesque setting. There are many identified problems but these only scratch the surface of what is available. Typically problems are slopey, technical and not too steep.

Approach notes

Park at the Gendalough Visitor's centre and follow the Miners' track up the valley for about 25 minutes. You cant miss the boulders.
