Crag features

A series of outcrops on the Roundwood road about 1km from the village of Kilmacanogue,(serviced by Dublin Bus route 45a from Dun Laoghaire [+1km walk]). All of the climbs described here are on two craglets situated above and left of a house which was once a shop on the left side of the road (note: Holly Tree Crag is the righthand one of two when viewed from the road, Silver Spring Crag is on left and slightly higher).

Approach notes

Approach. Park at Healy Pottery and walk up the road for 150m to a green metal telecoms box against a low wall on the righthand side of the road (limited parking for 1 or 2 cars here). The path to the crag starts just left of the largest tree directly opposite this parking spot. Hop over the ditch and follow the track up to the foot of Holly Tree Crag (5 minutes from the road). Traverse left from here to Silver Spring Crag.
