GR O 161 084

Two short routes within striking distance of Dublin on a long summers evening. Traveling west on the A759 from Roundwood to Sally Gap with Lough Tay below on the left, park in a lay-by on the right just, before the sharp right hand bend at Boleyhorrigan Bridge. Cross the road and descend 70m down a steep grass gully between two rock buttresses. The following routes are located on the left buttress when facing Lough Tay.
These climbs are just on or within the boundary of Luggala Lodge. Don't go looking for more routes down the hill because invasion of the "back garden" might cause animosity with the owners of the main climbing area at Luggala.


Numbers E2 5c
Start up the leaning arête and follow the crack system left-ward up the steep wall (avoiding a possible escape left onto the steep grassy bank).
