Crag features

The sea cliff climbing in Achill is on well weathered and featured Daldradian Quartzite, and mainly in the lower to mid grades. As a general rule the rock offers excellent friction, good to excellent protection and very clean distinct lines. The climbs have an adventurous feel, often striking out directly above the sea, most requiring abseil access and often hanging belay stances. Parties should be well organized and competent in sea cliff access. The ground above the tops of some routes requires care; it is worth leaving abseil ropes in place to protect exit routes.

Sea conditions can be rough, at times requiring a high belay point to avoid spray and large waves. Once orientated and comfortable with the approach, Achill offers high quality climbing, covering a whole variety of situations and techniques. New routes are easily found, with scope for a huge number of lines at all grades.
