Classic local problem on pristine granite © pebblespanker

Crag features

A bouldering area located close to Dublin. It is a narrow steep sided valley between Enniskerry and Kilternan. It has a variety of problems from 3+ to 8A. These are located either side of the Enniskerry/Dublin Road that cuts through the valley.

The area is well sheltered by tree's and its steep slopes,which means that some problems stay dry in light rain. Midges can be an issue, but are mainly found on the west side of the valley.

Approach notes

Parking is limited close to a narrow slip beside a gate, maybe 3 cars will fit. Further up the road (Dublin side) is a garage/small shop where you might be able to park and walk from.
The 44 goes from the city center, through Dundrum and passes through the Scalp. Get off at the garage by the Kilternan ski slope.

Lovely little venue, problems spread out but well worth finding. Be carreful when walking up and down or across the busy little road
