Runkerry - Route 1 - Called this as its the first climb you come to © Davey_HB

Crag features

Height - 12m at it's highest point

Location - Directly below Runkerry House, follow the cliff path on the first right off the tram track/ Giants Causeway railway path or take the cliff path from the Giants Causeway. 15 minutes walk in.

Belay Points - 3 rings at the top of the cliff

You can access the bottom and the top of the climb.

Brilliant for top and bottom roping also OK for leading.

Approach notes

Parking can be found at the pay and display at the Giants Causeway or down at the railway. DO NOT PARK ALONG THE ROAD. A further option is to park in Portballintrae and walk along the beach.

There are other routes already on the Donegal guidebook at the Colmcille climbers website. The crag is fine for leading and my preferred parking option is to park in Portbalintrae and walk along the beach.

Volunteer to moderate Runkerry
We rely on volunteers to moderate their local crags. You would check updates and approve climbs added to the database. It's a very easy job, and all you need is a guidebook and an hour or two each month. [ read more ]
