A Feather in the West - New Routing on Owey

© Pertex

This week's Friday Night Video is a trip to the small island of Owey. A team of talented Irish climbers explore sea cliffs that local guidebook writer Iain Miller claims, have "enough new routing potential to last at least twelve lifetimes". As they explore the island, we discover what it takes to seek out new, uncharted climbs and turn them from a piece of salt-soaked, lichen lined rock into a world-class three-star route in a guidebook. The climbers themselves discover an environment and community that is uniquely wondrous, beguiling and unforgettable.
